Metropolis Ensemble at the Times Center

Posted on Wednesday, January 9, 2008

The Times Center, NY

Some of New York's best chamber players have been corralled by the energetic young conductor Andrew Cyr to form the Metropolis Ensemble. They've just announced their spring concert which will take place this April 10, in another great looking American venue - the Times Center, part of the New York Times building designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano, and situated in the heart of the Times Square District adjacent to The New 42nd Street.

The concert will end with my arragement of Satie's Sports et Divertissements specially commissioned by the Ensemble. They are a wonderful set of pieces, and I think and hope the orchestration adds an extra layer to their wit and colour.

More info on the Metropolis Ensemble website.

Hi David,
Thank you so much for this link. I was looking for this book for some time now, but never thought of an on-line archive.
Gunther Schuller refered a lot to this book in 'Early Jazz'.
