Important American Composer
Zoe Erisman | 03/02/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"....a fresh, strong voice in American music. George Walker's Violin Concerto
is both erudite and enjoyable. Gregory Walker renders a sympatico performance
of his father's work. Kudos to both father and son!"
George Walker - American Composer
N. Brad Townsend | Chandler, AZ | 03/02/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A wonderful addition to the already substantial catalog of compositions and recordings by American composer George Walker. What makes this recording special is that Dr. Walker's son, Gregory Walker, takes on the challenge of performing this work. A wonderful recording and performance. This will be my 6th CD of Dr. Walker's music. In addition to his brilliance as a composer, he is also a very talented and capable concert pianist. Don't forget to check into some of those recordings as well (especially the Liszt Piano Sonata in B minor!)"
Fantastic! Pure energy...

"This is a remarkable example of modern American classical music. Fantastic! Pure energy... The combo of father and son is totally unique. Where else could you hear this combination- I can't think of another father and son who are both world class."
