Sinfonia No. 2 is a new DSD EP from Gianandrea Noseda conducting the National Symphony Orchestra. This is a DSD Exclusive, Not Available on SACD release at NativeDSD.Com. This DSD EP is part of the complete George Walker: Five Sinfonias series,
George Walker never wanted to be seen simply as a Black composer. He refused to be pigeonholed in that way, and while he occasionally made allusions to Negro spirituals in his music, his mature style is firmly rooted in European modernism. Some critics have detected influences of Stravinsky and Hindemith, but the Fiercely independent Walker was, essentially, going his own way and did not profess allegiance to any “camp”.
Sinfonia No. 2 was commissioned by the Koussevitzky Foundation, one of the most prestigious organizations devoted to the promotion of contemporary music, honoring the memory of Serge Koussevitzky, long-time music director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Walker’s work was the first performed by Neeme Järvi and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in 1993.
