The composer Petr Kotik is also an adventurous conductor who founded and directs both the S.E.M. Ensemble, based in New York, and the Ostravska Banda, based in Ostrava, in the Czech Republic. Every now and then Mr. Kotik brings his groups together, as he did on Wednesday evening at Zankel Hall. As in previous collaborations, their chemistry was just about perfect.
