I went to see an incredible U.S. Premiere of Steven Mackey's "Time Release" last night by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra under Marin Alsop.
I'd highly recommend checking out this piece if/when the recording is released.
They also played Strauss (Till Eugenspiel...), Debussy (Faun), and Stravinsky (Firebird suite), and knocked them all out of the park if you ask me -- really an excellent performance all around.
They played an encore piece which sounded insanely familiar but I can't place it. It was a short (maybe 4 minutes), modern, fast, percussive piece which liberally quoted Bach's Fugue no.2 from WTC. It was a great piece and I'd like to track down a recording -- anybody know what piece this is?
