Description

There is more than a faint wind of Satie in the works of the American composer Richard Wilson as well. Titles of his works are very in keeping with that beautiful eccentric: Deux pas de trois: Pavane and tango; Sour Flowers: 8 Piano Pieces in the Form of an Herbal. But Wilson's pedigree is certainly red, white, and blue: born in Cleveland in 1941, he went off to Harvard in 1959 where he counted Randall Thompson among his teachers. Piano teachers included Leonard Shure in new York and Friedrich Wüehrer in Munich. After receiving his M.A. at Rutgers, Wilson went to his teaching home of Vassar, where he has thrived for 30 years and is now the Mary Conover Mellon rofessor of Music.
