Also today: one of Nadia’s students, American composer Virgil Thomson, won the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 1949 for his cajun music-themed soundtrack for the film “The Louisiana Story.” He created two concert suites from the soundtrack music, the “Suite” that is primarily music for dramatic sequences and “Acadian Songs and Dances” that are based on authentic Cajun tunes.
(Acadians were French speakers from Nova Scotia who in the mid 1700s left for Louisiana. Cajuns are their descendants.)
