NY PHIL BIENNIAL

“It has the potential to break out of the classical ghetto and into the consciousness of cultured New Yorkers. While there are a fair number of familiar names in the programs, the open-call scheme creates an opportunity for real discoveries.”

That’s a taste of New Yorker critic Alex Ross’s effusive reaction in his blog, The Rest Is Noise, to Wednesday's announcement of the NY PHIL BIENNIAL, a kaleidoscopic exploration of today’s music by a wide range of more than 50 contemporary and modern composers that will showcase an array of performances presented with partners in venues both on and off the Lincoln Center campus. The New York Times shared his enthusiasm, writing, “The inaugural series, to run from May 28 to June 7, 2014, positions the orchestra at the heart of an evolving cultural sector concerned with new sounds and fresh ideas.”
