dedicated to the support of living musicians and composers

From Nadia Sirota on Q2: “Ecstatic Salad”


“There is so much Q2 on Q2 this week! Monday, Tuesday, and Friday on the show, we explore music that was written during composers’ salad days. We’re focusing on the early works that catapulted some of our favorite composers into their careers. For some, these are voice-defining pieces, and for others, these works were composed in styles long-discarded.

Wednesday and Thursday’s shows are devoted to our Web cast of the Kaufman Center’s Ecstatic Marathon, an event that took place three weeks ago. Having participated in the marathon, I can say that I was blown away by the quality and diversity of the performers, the craft of the music and, honestly, the rabid devotion of the audience! If you missed the marathon, or simply live elsewhere, this is your chance to virtually attend a wonderful show.


Make sure to listen to Q2 Thursday evening at 7:30 p.m. for the Ecstatic Music Festival’s Bang on a Can People’s Comissioning Fund Concert. This concert is the first of four New Sounds Live Web casts hosted by WNYC’s John Schaefer.”
