“Join Q2 for live tapings from the 2011 Mostly Mozart Festival’s Kaplan Penthouse of the adventurous International Contemporary Ensemble. On Monday, August 8 at 10:30 p.m. conductor Pablo Heras-Casado leads the ensemble through an intimate program centered around the music of Igor Stravinsky, including lesser-known works by Edison Denisov, Luciano Berio, Alfred Schnittke and more.
On Thursday, August 11 at 10:30 p.m., conductor-composer Matthias Pintscher takes up the baton against the backdrop of the New York City skyline in a program featuring New York and world premieres by Jonathan Harvey, Steve Lehman and Phyllis Chen. The program also includes John Zorn’s Chistabal and the visually compelling Mozart’s Adagio and Rondo for glass armonica, K. 617.
