NYU Steinhardt's 'Illuminating' Collaboration with EMF Reviewed by the New York Times

Through a collaboration the New York Times calls "illuminating," New York University's Steinhardt School and the Electronic Music Foundation presented four compositions by Luigi Nono at the Frederick Loewe Theatre on Monday, February 27.

New York Times critic Steve Smith reviewed the NYU Percussion Ensemble's performance: "Likewise, in 'Con Luigi Dallapiccola' (1979), for six percussionists and live electronics, I admired in roughly equal measure Nono’s imaginative, exacting manipulation of sound, space and silence; the deft, skillful work of the NYU Percussion Ensemble, precisely conducted by David Fein; and the intricate choreography by which these players efficiently marshaled dozens of implements and as many techniques."
