Sean Shepherd's Biennial Blog: Wrapping Up the NY PHIL BIENNIAL

Posted June 13, 2014

Sean Shepherd NY PHIL BIENNIAL NY Philharmonic

In his final Biennial Blog post on NewMusic Box, Kravis Emerging Composer Sean Shepherd takes stock of the 11-day inaugural NY PHIL BIENNIAL ("My stated goal in the first post was to hear lots of live music, which I managed to achieve in spades, and which was every bit as rejuvenating and electrifying as I’d hoped it would be") and recaps the concluding concerts ("When 12-and-unders ... joined members of the orchestra on stage to hear their pieces, each an individual jewel, and took their triumphant bows, my mother hen’s heart lept!")

Hear Sean's own music next week, June 18–21, when the Philharmonic gives the World Premiere of his Songs, led by Alan Gilbert during The Beethoven Piano Concertos festival with Artist-in-Residence Yefim Bronfman.
