Charles Kaufmann: Frances Walker in 'fine YouTube performances' of 'The Cuckoo' by Howard Swanson & 'Variations sérieuses, Op. 54' of Mendelssohn

Frances Walker (b. 1924) (YouTube)

Charles Kaufmann of The Longfellow Chorus of Portland, Maine writes:

Bill --

Here are two fine YouTube performances by Frances Walker:

1) The Cuckoo, by Howard Swanson:

2) Mendelssohn Variations sérieuses, Op.54

What a magical performance!  For a moment I almost believed the cuckoo's call was being played by a clarinet.  Instead, it was Ms. Walker's excellent technique. Lyn Brown
