This recording continues the series on Albany Records of the music of the distinguished composer George Walker, who celebrated his 90th birthday June 27. Walker is an acknowledged American Master whose orchestral works have been played by every major American orchestra. He is the recipient of seven honorary doctorate degrees and has been inducted into the American Classical Music Hall of Fame. Included on the album are his Piano Sonata No. 3 written in 1976, his Music for 3 composed in 1971, his Piano Sonata No. 5 composed in 2003 and numerous songs. Walker’s music is given superb performances by a sterling group of artists.
 

"George Walker’s album of concert music is great indeed. The third piano sonata is played exquisitely here by Leon Bates... The long list of songs in English, sung strongly by Alison Buchanan, covers a variety of affects an styles... The balance between singer and pianist on all of the songs is right, and the musicality between the two makes the song a joy to listen to. Buchanan sings with prescence and authority, and Walker accompanies her with superb taste and maturity (he did write the music after all)..."
