On Monday’s season premiere of CONTACT!, our new-music series, Philharmonic cellist Nathan Vickery was “formidable,” violinist Anna Rabinova “played brilliantly,” and the entire ensemble was “impressive,” according to The New York Times.
Feast of Music joined the applause, writing of the program hosted by American composer John Adams: “The Phil musicians really showed their chops here, with crisp, clean playing and beautiful, clear sustains. As good and vital as all the young NYC new music groups are, CONTACT’s raison d’être has never been more clear.”
Check out the rest of this season’s music from the cutting edge.
