Stockhausen’s ‘Gruppen’ at Park Avenue Armory

English: Karlheinz Stockhausen October 1994 in...

From NYTimes.com:

Now, on Friday and next Saturday, the Philharmonic returns to the armory in similarly spectacular style for “Philharmonic 360,” a program of pieces that feature spatially dispersed players and multiple ensembles. Built around “Gruppen,” a work for three orchestras completed in 1957 by the visionary German composer Karlheinz Stockhausen, the program is characteristic of the extravagant projects with which the Philharmonic’s music director, Alan Gilbert, has concluded recent seasons.

28th Victoriaville Musique Actuelle Festival (2012) Reviewed

A Victo review from Bruce of DMG:

As music venues, records stores, and book stores in cosmopolitan cultural centers like New York City, London, Paris and elsewhere continue to close down, the need for a festival like Victo has grown more important for all of us wishing to witness creative new music from around the globe.
