Whether you missed it or want to relive it, you can make CONTACT! with Andy Akiho, Andrew Norman, Jude Vaclavik, and Jacob Druckman. Q2 Music is streaming the concerts on Friday, December 28 at 3 p.m. and Saturday, December 29 at 10 a.m. For the next month, you can hear the concert (either in its entirety or by individual piece) here.

And be sure to check out the New York Times review, which paraphrases Mae West, evokes the image of a viola being “stretched on a medieval rack,” and says of Vaclavik’s SHOCK WAVES, ”Impressive as the barbarous rumble and roil could be, what impressed most was Mr. Vaclavik’s feeling for proportion and resolution; no effect outlasted its efficacy.”

Speaking of, you can still relive the Philharmonic’s performance of Ives’s The Unanswered Question (with a beautiful trumpet solo by Phil Smith), plus Stockhausen’s Gruppen and more, from Philharmonic 360, co-produced by the Orchestra and the Park Avenue Armory.
Q2 Music, WQXR’s contemporary-music station, will stream the concert audio July 14 at 10 a.m., and it will be available on-demand for 30 days on q2music.org. Or you can watch a Philharmonic-produced webcast via medici.tv.

New York City is, without question, one of the most energetic cities in the world. It was not very easy to live in a shoebox during my first two years in New York, but I knew I had been given a unique and very special opportunity.

—  Alexandre Lunsqui on returning to his former home of New York City from Sao Paolo, Brazil, for the World Premiere of his Fibers, Yarn, and Wire on this week’s CONTACT! concerts. Mr. Lunsqui will be blogging this week for Q2 Music about his experience composing for, rehearsing with, and having his work performed by the New York Philharmonic. Check Tumblr and Q2 Music regularly this week for more updates. And until the next blog, here’s a video of the composer at the WQXR studios.
