On Thursday, August 11, the International Contemporary Ensemble performed its final concert as part of their residency at this year's Mostly Mozart Festival. The performance was led by conductor-composer Matthias Pintscher against the backdrop of the New York City skyline at Lincoln Center's Kaplan Penthouse, and featured a New York premiere by Jonathan Harvey and two world premieres from ICElab composers Steve Lehman and Phyllis Chen. The evening also included John Zorn's Chistabal for five flutists and the otherworldly Rondo for glass armonica, K. 617 by Mozart.
