Tracing Legacies program, performed by violinist and composer Gregory Walker and pianist Redi Llupa explores the continuity of cultural and familial legacies through the works by J. Brahms, George Walker and Gregory Walker. The program centers on the two sonatas for violin and piano by Pulitzer Prize-winning African-American composer George Walker (1922-2018), whose music has been hailed for its “powerful authenticity and dramatic expression” (Classical New Jersey), “hushed beauty and passionate intensity” (American Record Guide), and “superb craftsmanship” (Classics Today). George Walker's sonatas for violin and piano will be presented in the context of both the tradition that they built upon, as encapsulated by the work of Johannes Brahms and the tradition that they pass on to the next generations, as expressed in the work of Gregory Walker, George Walker’s son.
