Happy Birthday William Walton

Famed British com­pos­er Sir William Wal­ton was born on this day, March 29, 1902.

In hon­or of his 110th birth­day, today’s pro­gram on Radio Riel’s Main stream focus­es on his music, as well as the music of the two oth­er Eng­lish com­posers that “stood” on either side of him in the 20th Cen­tu­ry

Sir Edward Elgar was most active and promi­nent in the ear­ly 20th Cen­tu­ry. Sir Ben­jamin Brit­ten achieved recog­ni­tion and respect in the last half of it. Wal­ton’s works are pri­mar­i­ly mid 20th Cen­tu­ry, as his career began in the 1920s and spanned 60 years.
