Sounds of the Times: Myths and Memories Presented by New World Symphony

One of America’s most devoted champions of contemporary music, Jeffrey Milarsky, returns to the New World Symphony for a mind-blowing evening of new music. Finnish composer Magnus Lindberg’s energetic and imaginative Joy embraces his position “on the front line of modern music, deeply aware of tradition.”  Musical America hailed Steven Mackey’s Mnemosyne’s Pool, a New World Symphony commission, as the “first great American symphony of the 21st century.” Named for the Greek goddess of remembrance, the work explores the role of memory in musical experience. One thing is certain: This East Coast premiere will be unforgettable.
