Recent New Music Reviews and Audio
"The orchestra had opened with the New York premiere of an even more explosive if considerably shorter piece, Philip Wharton‘s There Was a Star Danced, which followed the initial big bang resonance through rapifire showers of sparks from the violins and then what became wryly jaunty, rhythmic jousting." - LucidCulture

"By contrast, the world premiere of Jun Yi Chow’s Serenade mashed up a lively neoromantic drive, a big, acidic fanfare and an austerely otherworldly, circular string conclusion, in the process channeling a hundred years of orchestral music." - LucidCulture
