The Music of Lou Harrison

Lou Harrison (1917-2003) is a great California composer whose music is little heard in the Eastern United States. Drawing on the fragrant poetry of Indonesian gamelan music, he achieved a serene synthesis of Western and Eastern modes.
In collaboration with the Indonesian Embassy, the Film Division of the National Gallery of Art, The George Washington University, and Wesleyan University. This festival is made possible with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, and The Aaron Copland Fund for Music.See Complete Program
