New Music New York

I saw the New York Philharmonic’s CONTACT! concert Saturday night at the Metropolitan Museum and will have a review of it soon at MusicWeb International’s Seen and Heard (the holidays do slow down the publication process a bit), but can say in brief that it was impressive all around, and you can hear it for yourself at Q2, which will be streaming a recording of it at 7PM on Tuesday, 12/22 and at 2PM Sunday, 12/27. Unfortunately you will be missing the theatrical element of Arthur Kampela’s piece, but you’ll still hear a lot of good music. It’s incredibly important and exciting that the orchestra of New York City is promoting new music again, in what is arguably the capital of new music and creative experimentation.
