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. Ochsner uses his own musical gifts and administrative skills not merely to advocate for contemporary music and musicians and to enrich and inspire the lives of all who listen. How lucky we all are.

The recipe was all there — dedicated players, a packed venue, strong drinks…

All the hallmarks of a great “Rite” were here

The entire evening was moving and exhilarating. SONOS’ important mission of exploring “repertoire that is not heard” and programming “concerts that spark interest and thought” was wonderfully fulfilled., June 25,, June 25, 2012
