New York Times Fall Preview highlights The Hunt, John Zorn at 70, and Tallis Scholars
from the 9/4/23 Fall Preview Issue
"Classical Music and Opera This Fall: Programs, Premieres and More," the fall preview by Joshua Barone and Zachary Woolfe for The New York Times, leads with the premiere of The Hunt by Kate Soper — one of the "highlights coming this fall." Soper "returns to medieval legend for her latest stage work...that premise is merely a fraction of the preoccupations and innovations she has in store."
With John Zorn turning 70 this year, Barone and Woolfe note that celebrations of "this indispensable musician’s 70th birthday have already begun, and continue with a pair of programs of his skill-stretching works at the Miller Theater at Columbia University: a mixed bill on Sept. 21, featuring the JACK Quartet and additional artists; and an evening of song, on Nov. 16, again with the JACK players, alongside the fearless soprano Barbara Hannigan."
The Tallis Scholars concert on Miller's Early Music series is a featured event for December: "This beloved group is a staple of the New York classical season, and its next appearance is special, coming as part of its 50th anniversary tour."
