The needlessly intimidating and immensely rewarding British composer Harrison Birtwistle turns 80 this year, and the NYNME will celebrate with six works, including three US premieres. Titles such as Crescent Moon Over the Irrational, Fantasia Upon All the Notes, and The Axe Manual (for percussion and piano) suggest the dramatic and elemental sounds in store.
