    Ken…many thanks for the thoughtful review (although I worried a little about the photo, since Wu Han sis not participate in this performance. As far as CMSLC’s mission of “expanding the repertoire” is concerned, I would recommend that you look at all four of their concerts in LJMS’ Revelle Series as a unified whole. You didn’t mention that this series is one of LJMS’ important nods to its 45th anniversary; having the New Yorkers come all the way to the west coast for four concerts (which make up the entire 2013-2014 Revelle Series) is pretty special! And if you look ahead to the works still to come in the series, I don’t think anyone would dispute that the Lilncoln Center folks are doing great things in expanding the repertoire. Thanks again for the thoughtful evaluations.

      Marcus, the photo I used was the one the La Jolla Music Society sent me when I asked for photos to run with the review. I did look at the rest of the programming for this series featuring the Lincoln Center artists, and I did not notice any composers from the last couple of decades. Did I miss something?

        Marcus, I apologize. I note two pieces on the 3rd program from Lincoln Center–one by Joan Tower and one by Sebastian Currier–that fall into a contemporary category. But two pieces in four concerts is a rather modest number, don’t you think?

    Who chooses which pieces CMSLC will perform here?
