Notes & Reviews:

Unexpected events rupture continuity; they occur suddenly and they create a moment, a now, in which the flow of history dissolves into “suddenness.” The question posed by David Lang in the title of his melodrama 'Are you experienced?' is rhetorical in nature, given that the piece takes a speculative look at the unexpected end of a concert evening. Philippe Boesmans, best known as a composer of operas, surprises us with a Biedermeier sextet. For Richard Barrett, interference becomes a structural principle, and Luca Francesconi knows the formula for driving the formulaic out of music.
