The series of George Walker's orchestral music continues!

The most recent volume in the series on Albany Records devoted to the orchestral music of George Walker includes two concertos -- one for piano and the other for cello -- interspersed with works for large chamber ensembles and Icarus, commissioned by the New Jersey Youth Symphony in 2004. George Walker's music has been performed by every major American orchestra and many international orchestras, including those of Great Britain, Europe and South America. Recordings of his music appear on Sony, BIS, Klavier Centaur, Naxos and Albany Records, among others. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1996, Walker has received commissions from the New York Philharmonic, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Cleveland Orchestra and the Philadelphia Orchestra. He is the recipient of six honorary doctoral degrees.

Review:
"The music of George Walker is worth knowing, especially if you're a collector of serious American music beyond the popular favorites." (Greg La Traille, ArkivMusic.com)

"A composer who deserves a much more prominent position in front of the concert-going public. ...this disc contains music that shows a master composer at work, at the top of his game, and is a pleasure to recommend." (Audiophile Audition)
