Steven Stucky Featured at the New York Philharmonic Biennial

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).

The performance of Stucky’s Second Concerto for Orchestra marked the its New York premiere and New York Philharmonic premiere. The highly regarded work, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 2005, was chosen as part of the festival closing event. Stucky’s prominent spot amidst many composers in the festival certainly marked a grand inclusion and recognition of his music.

Unquestionably the most immediate
knockout of the series…an electrifying
display of orchestral fireworks…
