When: Sun., March 8, 2-4 p.m. 2020
Join us for our collaborative faculty–student celebration of two icons of the 20th century. The composers William Walton (1902-1983) and Paul Hindemith (1895-1963) met almost by accident. In 1929, when Walton’s intended soloist for his new Viola Concerto backed out, Hindemith, who also played the viola, agreed to play the premiere. Hindemith’s performance was key to the work’s success, and the two men remained lifelong friends. As this program attests, Hindemith loved to compose chamber works across the full instrumental spectrum, including clarinet, horns, classical guitar.
