William Bolcom
Pulitzer Prize-winning composer William Bolcom is 72 today.  He's best known for his Graceful Ghost Rag, his monumental Songs of Innocence and of Experience, and his partnership with wife and soprano Joan Morris to perform American popular songs.  He will be composer-in-residence at this summer's Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival.  We'll celebrate his birthday with The Garden of Eden, a 1969 set of four piano rags: Old Adam, The Eternal Feminine, The Serpent's Kiss, and Through Eden's Gates
