Aspen, New York Times May 2017
ASPEN, COLO., JUNE 29-AUG. 20 A few themes run through this sprawling festival, which has more than 400 events. “Enchantment” explores the magical and mythical in music by composers like Ravel, Debussy, Stravinsky, Alexander Zemlinsky and Christopher Theofanidis. A concentration on concertos includes new contributions to the genre by Anna Clyne, Jonathan Leshnoff, Alan Fletcher and Matthew Ricketts.
