Efterklang with the Wordless Music Orchestra at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, September 22, 2012
The New York Times, Sept. 24, 2012
Belatedly getting around to posting my bit on the collaboration between Danish art-pop trio Efterklang and the Wordless Music Orchestra, which featured handsome new orchestrations by Danish composer Karsten Fundal and New York postclassical mainstay Missy Mazzoli.
Two items of related interest from The New York Times: Allan Kozinn's article about Limor Tomer and the changes afoot in the Met Museum's Concerts & Lectures department this season, and a post-concert blog post by Wm. Ferguson of The New York Times Magazine. The concert was streamed live on Q2, but evidently is not archived.
Parenthetically speaking, you can always kind of tell what kind of week is underway by how long it takes me to post a link to a published Times review, a process that seldom takes more than 20 minutes when I add comments and links, and far less time when I don't. This has been a rough one so far, but in the spirit of keeping things in perspective, let's say it's been a 7.5 on a 10 scale—which isn't so bad, all things considered.
