Buzz about the L&L Festival:
New York Classical Review, 5/4/15: “The 14th annual Look and Listen Festival concluded Sunday at the Whitebox Art Center with a concert of new music that featured the performers as much as the composers… listeners had the close-up experience of what some contemporary composers are producing … perfectly satisfying … finely made and finely played.”
The New York Times, 5/1/15: “New-music royalty including the violinist Miranda Cuckson, So Percussion and the cellist Jeffrey Zeigler take to art venues in Brooklyn and Manhattan for this wide-ranging festival.”
The New Yorker: “chock-full of edgy new music”
I Care If You Listen, 5/21/15: “Look and Listen’s opening night served its mission with excellent resolve. Showcasing these works in an unconventional gallery space made for a clear analogy to the importance of new music and art, their potential dialogue, and how and where these media are consumed.”
The New Yorker, Goings on About Town, 4/28/14: “This series, a going concern since 2002, builds on the spirit of the postwar New York School by placing vibrant concerts of new music into forward-looking art galleries.”
New York Times ArtsBeat: “an eclectic slate of new music concerts in galleries”
The New York Times: “This adventurous festival offers treats for eyes and ears.”
Time Out New York: “An ambitious grassroots music and visual art series that grows more impressive with each passing year.”
Steve Smith, New York Times: “This personable festival has hit on a winning formula: vital new music presented by authoritative players in an informal setting, surrounded by contemporary art.”
Time Out New York: “impeccably curated”
Allan Kozinn, New York Times: “much-too-short”
