The Momenta Festival in New York Reviewed

Source: The New York Times.

The Momenta Quartet, to judge not only from its performance style but also from its choice of repertory and the nature of the works written for it, seems to prize individuality at least as much as homogeneous blend. Its very name, using the plural of momentum, is meant, the group says in a program, to signify “four individuals in motion toward a common goal.”

So the structure of its first Momenta Festival (envisioned as an annual affair), which opened on Wednesday evening at the Tenri Cultural Institute, came as no surprise. Each of the four evenings is curated by a different member.
