Review

  • The Philharmonic asked six composers to imagine
    the millennium through music.

    The pieces show the future is in good hands.
    [‥]The most contemplative score is by Satoh :
    Kisetsu, which in English means“season”
    and expresses the hope of a new era characterized less
    by the masculine spirit of war and massacre than
    by the femminine qualities of love and kindness. It’s a gogeous piece,
    unafraid to be minimal and tonal
    (there’s even a key signature)but exquisitely shaped
    and full of subtly shifting instrumental colors.[…]
