A String Serenade

George Walker was the first African American to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music (1996), so it is fitting that his Lyric for Strings is included in this inspirational  program. Mozart’s Wind Serenade No. 11 is pleasingly playful yet heartfelt, Handel’s Harp Concerto No. 6, played by principal harpist Madeline Olson, lends the harp a delicate magic, and Bach’s Air is celestial with the instantly recognizable second movement of his Baroque masterpiece. JoAnn Falletta conducts.
