The music of Steven Stucky was featured in the New York Philharmonic Biennial, which ran from May 23 until June 11. The New York Philharmonic’s music director, Alan Gilbert, curated the music selections alongside Esa-Pekka Salonen and featured two works by the late composer: The Stars and the Roses for tenor and ensemble (performed on June 8 by the Aspen Contemporary Ensemble) and Second Concerto for Orchestra (performed on June 11 by the New York Philharmonic).
Winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize in Music
Unquestionably the most immediate
knockout of the series…an electrifying
display of orchestral fireworks…
