William Schuman 100th

Today marks 100 years since William Schuman was born. A gifted composer, Schuman was also an arts force in America and led many organizations including Lincoln Center, Schrimer Music, Juilliard and won the first Pulitzer Prize in Music!
Here is an interview I did a few years ago with the president of the Juilliard School about his grand book on Schuman:

I've always enjoyed Schuman's New England Triptych. It is played a lot. I wish his symphonies were played more often.
