The New York Philharmonic’s new music series CONTACT! returns to Q2

Q2

The New York Philharmonic’s new music series CONTACT! returns to Q2 with Music Director Alan Gilbert conducting the second concert of its inaugural season. Listen in Thursday, April 22 at 7 p.m., or during an encore presentation Saturday, April 24 at 4 p.m., for world premieres of works by Nico Muhly, Matthias Pintscher, and Sean Shepherd. Read what bloggers are saying about the concerts which took place at Symphony Space on April 16 and at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on April 17.

Q2 is thrilled to continue partnering with the New York Philharmonic and its commitment to commissioning works from today’s young and emerging composers. In this second installment, each composer participates in a Q&A and contributes a personal introduction to his or her work, making each CONTACT! concert experience candid, refreshing, and unique. The first CONTACT! concert at Symphony Space featured world premieres by Lei Liang, Marc-André Dalbavie, Arlene Sierra, and Arthur Kampela and generated great critical acclaim both in the press and blogging community (hear more from Q2 about that past concert, including composer interviews and repertoire excerpts).

You can hear the entire performance on Q2 April 22 at 7 p.m., or April 24 at 4 p.m. In addition, Q2 will be adding these world premieres to our ongoing programming, along with other works by Muhly, Pintscher, and Shepherd for a limited time following the April 22 webcast. You can hear Q2 any time through our pop-audio player or through iTunes.
