Posted April 28, 2014

Mark Swed, in The Los Angeles Times "Spring arts 2014: Classical music" preview, wrote:

[T]aking his cue from the Whitney Museum's Biennial, New York Philharmonic music director Alan Gilbert will launch a highly ambitious 11-day festival that appears to be using every nook and cranny of Lincoln Center (and some beyond). Among the events will be a staging of refined Japanese composer Toshio Hosokawa's opera "The Raven," a performance of rambunctious Austrian composer HK Gruber's "Gloria: A Pig's Tale," a tribute to composer Pierre Boulez (a former New York Philharmonic music director), concerts by young composers, a concert of premieres by the Bang on a Can All-Stars and much else.
