String Force – September 4, 2011

String Force  -  Governor’s Island  -  September 4, 2011

This recital was the final installment of the “Rite of Summer” music festival on Governor’s Island, featuring some up-and-comers working the solo piano and piano/violin duet formats.  Goldberg is active in developing new (read: less stodgy) venues for classical music, vital to the vibrant  NYC scene, including this one with co-director McMillen.  The above use of the term “classical” is kind of loose, since of the 6 composers represented in this concert, only one was born before 1900, and 4 are still with us.  Cuckson & McMillen closed out with a highly spirited rendition of John Adams’s “Road Movies”.
