Bates Premiere -- Outshining Mendelssohn?

February 23, 2007

Mason Bates' new electronica-orchestra-blending "Liquid Interface" premiered at the Kennedy Center last night, played by the National Symphony Orchestra under Leonard Slatkin.  Couldn't be there (had to be at Strathmore for Frans Lanting's "Life: A Journey Through Time") but the Post's Andrew Lindemann Malone caught it, and says the work "surpassed in sheer sonic beauty even the works by Mendelssohn and Tchaikovsky that rounded out the program."  Not bad.  Gets another performance this afternoon and Saturday at 8 pm, so check it out if you can.  Click here for the review.
