The annual Pulitzer Prize in Music went yesterday to Walter Piston '24, Naumberg Professor of Music, for his Third Symphony, which was premiered last January by the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
Reached at his home last night, Professor Piston said that he was "naturally very pleased," and added that, although he had heard that the Symphony was being considered for the award, nevertheless the news came as quite a surprise.
Professor Piston received the New York Critics Circle award for his Second Symphony, which he describes as one of his favorites, and many of his works have received considerable acclaim. Perhaps his most famous composition is the early ballet, "The Incredible Flutist."
