'MATA Festival'

Co-founded by compositional giant Philip Glass, this year's MATA festival sifted through nearly 500 submitted scores from under-40 composers around the world to present a veritable Tower of Babel of contemporary classical music. A bellwether of shifting tides in the genre's current scene--having helped launch the careers of Nico Muhly, Lukas Ligeti, and Annie Gosfield--MATA moves beyond the pale of mainstream institutions, a diverse summit of cosmopolitan voices continuing a lively musical conversation. Think Wagner with laptop-driven electronica. This year just might get Stockhausen rolling in his grave.
May 10-12, 6:30 p.m., 2011
