People are still talking about OM Festival 24, which presented rarely performed and luminous works of Ivan Wyschnegradsky, a pioneer microtonalist composer. Guest artists, the Arditti String Quartet, and a quartet of international new music pianists gave several American premieres. Also presented at the festival was The Pressure, a musical horror tale by Brian Baumbusch. Meanwhile, our series The Nature of Music has presented artists from a variety of disciplines whose work combines environmentalism and the arts. Our Special Events included piano music by Terry Riley, performed by Gloria Cheng and the composer, and Dmitri Shostakovich’s arrangements of his Symphony No. 4 and Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms performed by duo pianists Maki Namekawa and Dennis Russell Davies.
