Missa solemnis@ NY Phil 6/23/10

The last concert in my series was a doozie. Al Largo by Magnus Lindberg, composer in residence started the program with a kichen sink of sound, a good sink. All kinds of percussion and melodies sound new and yet not leaving us behind to figure it out. It was accesible and attractive. Al Largo is when the boat just loses sight of land and it’s on the high sea, hhhmmm.
Beethoven is the touch stone of all western music and this mass is wonderful. It is not often played ’cause it’s tough to do, but our NY Phil did the job.Four good singers and the NY Choral Artists did an amazing job. I was so mezmerized that I looked for the communion line.
