From The New Canon @Q2: “When the Clock Strikes ’12”


Looking at the Potential Best of the New Year
Friday, December 30, 2011

“I’m sad to bid farewell to 2011 but, as ever, have a boatload of things to look forward to in 2012—Quetzalcoatl notwithstanding. Philip Glass turns 75 (insert obvious repetition joke here), Huang Ruo brings excerpts from his controversial-in-China opera Dr. Sun Yat-sen to (Le) Poisson Rouge, Kaija Saariaho continues her residency at Carnegie Hall, it’s the John Cage centennial (insert obvious moment of silence joke here) and we already have events at the Miller Theatre, New York Philharmonic, Met Museum and Merkin Concert Hall on our dance cards.

So since last week we took a look at the best of 2011, we now turn around and look forward. With the ball ready to drop in Times Square, we have our own music to lay on you in anticipation of the year ahead.”
