[Juilliard] Le mois de la musique contemporaine à Juilliard (en anglais)

Could October be New Music Month at Juilliard? With Juilliard’s two acclaimed ensembles dedicated to the music of the 20th and 21st centuries—the New Juilliard Ensemble (N.J.E.) and AXIOM—opening their seasons within days of each other, along with the Juilliard Orchestra’s inspired programming of contemporary works, it’s hard not to pay attention. When asked about contemporary music at Juilliard, Ara Guzelimian, provost and dean, noted that “composers and new music are in Juilliard’s DNA, from the leadership years of William Schuman (president 1945-62) and Peter Mennin (faculty 1947-58, president 1962-83) to today. It’s a vital part of any musician’s life to be conversant with the music of the present day.”
