The music of British conductor and composer Oliver Knussen (b. 1952) is at once entirely accessible and thoroughly modern. A classical wunderkind, Knussen got his start at age 15, when he led the London Symphony Orchestra in performances of his First Symphony, at home and at New York’s Carnegie Hall. No stranger to New York’s new-music scene, his works have earned repeated accolades in performance at Lincoln Center. This concert traces his long and fruitful career, from his teenage years to more recent music, including many of his best-known and most-loved chamber works.
