This One Went to '11

Naming the Best of the Year in New Music

In observance of the holidays, we're taking a break from the New Canon live chat this week and next, but will see you in the chat room next year. Happy holidays!

Okay, first off—it's December. How did that happen?! Yet despite the shock that another year has passed, we've had a lot to love about new music in New York and beyond this year. Jeremy Denk played the bejeezus out of Ligeti; festivals galore thanks to Ecstatic and Tune In and SONiC and countless others; John Zorn made it to City Opera and John Adams made it to the (orchestral pit of) the Met; and in Minnesota a new work by Kevin Puts completely restored my faith in…everything.

So as we ring out 2011 and welcome in 2012, join us in counting down some of the best events by some sharp composers and performers, and tell us: What was your favorite musical moment of 2011?
