: Performance Today for Friday, June 28, 2013

Magnus Lindberg Courtesy the artist

Every week Performance Today features music written in the 21st Century. This week, we'll hear the world premiere performance of a piece Magnus Lindberg wrote to celebrate Alan Gilbert's first concert as music director of the New York Philharmonic. Lindberg is a Finnish composer. His piece is called EXPO. We'll hear that music signalling a brand new era from a live concert at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City.
