Special Guest: William Bolcom


Saturday, February 12, 2005

William Bolcom is a Pulitzer Prize-winning composer of song cycles, chamber pieces, rags, symphonies, and operas — including A Wedding and McTeague in which he collaborated with director Robert Altman. Bolcom dedicated most of his career to setting to music all the poems in William Blake’s Songs of Innocence and Experience. A recording has just been released — almost 50 years after work began and 20 years after the premiere. Bolcom often performs duet on piano with his wife, singer Joan Morris.
