Symphony No. 4 Hanson
Symphony No. 4 Op. 34, "Requiem" (1943) by Howard Hanson (1896-1981) is Hanson's fourth symphony. It was inspired by the death of his father, taking its movement titles from sections of the Requiem Mass. He was awarded the 1944 Pulitzer Prize for Music, unanimously selected by the jury, for the piece. Hanson regarded it as his finest work.
