In January 2022, the National Symphony Orchestra and Music Director Gianandrea Noseda began performing and recording the complete cycle of George Walker’s five sinfonias, in celebration of the composer’s 100th birthday. Remembering and honoring the music of George Walker is particularly special for the National Symphony Orchestra given the mutual connection to Washington, D.C., and the unique history of collaboration and commissions. This is the second release in the series Celebrating George Walker at 100.
“The sinfonias of George Walker have been an extraordinary musical discovery for me,” said Gianandrea Noseda. “They are concise in expression, rigorous in structure, and they have their own unique sound world. I am certain that the performances we are giving will result in recordings which confirm that George Walker is one of the great composers of recent times.”
