Wordless Music, the concert series run by Ronen Givony when he is not overseeing the classical and new-music programming at Le Poisson Rouge, is devoted to showing fans of indie rock and contemporary classical music that the two genres have a common appeal. That argument no longer requires special pleading, partly because Mr. Givony’s thoughtful juxtapositions have made the point so persuasively but also because so many young composers (and some of their elders) draw freely on both their classical and pop antecedents.
