Lyric for Strings, George Walker’s best-known work, opens this Philharmonia program conducted by Paul Phillips. Walker, now 95 years old, won the Pulitzer Prize in 1996 and is often dubbed the dean of African-American composers. Music for Strings, Percussion, and Celesta, a milestone of 20th-century music by Béla Bartók, follows, and Concerto Competition winner Patrick Worasaran performs Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 1 to end the program.

– George Walker: Lyric for Strings
