The concert was shaped by musical excellence and by the successful realization of several discrete goals. Contemporary composers, represented by both short, occasional pieces and monumental works, were championed; young artists’ careers were moved forward; neglected music was brought out for renewal.
I know that I will never know any of the repertoire on your concert, but I know that I will always love the program. These are events which should not be missed!
