Carnegie Hall Presents

Fast Forward

Steve Reich, Karlheinz Stockhausen, and Pierre Boulez are some of the visionary 20th- and 21st- century composers whose music will be performed by cutting-edge ensembles in this series. A new work and early classics by Reich are showcased by percussionists Colin Currie and Daniel Druckman, and pianists Simon Crawford-Phillips and Philip Moore; while the exhilarating American Composers Orchestra performs world premieres by young composers and a Meredith Monk classic. Theatre of Voices sing Stockhausen’s massive and mesmerizing Stimmung, and the compelling piano music of Boulez is performed by two pianists closely associated with the composer: Pierre-Laurent Aimard and Tamara Stefanovich.
