Gearing up for the New York Philharmonic's annual New Music series in November and December, CONTACT!, Cued Up on Q2 streams highlights from the orchestra's 2010 season. Conducted by music director Alan Gilbert, listen in on Sunday, November 14 at 2 p.m. to hear the NY Phil blaze through some New Music that captured the ears and imaginations of host Nadia Sirota and music fans of the last 100 years.
Recorded live all around New York City, experience performances of John Adams, Magnus Lindberg, Alban Berg, Charles Ives and Christopher Rouse.
In addition, Q2 will stream the first half of November's CONTACT! on Wednesday, November 24 and Saturday, November 27 (both at 8 p.m.) and Tuesday, November 30 at 4 p.m. These concerts, which are taking place November 19 and 20 at Symphony Space and at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, respectively, pay homage to spectral music heavyweight Gérard Grisey by presenting his work alongside his pupil, Magnus Lindberg. The second half of the series debuts and airs in December, and spotlights premieres by Julian Anderson, James Matheson and Jay Alan Yim.
