We interrupt this program….

…to recommend that, if you live in New York, you get thee to Karole Armitage’s show at the Joyce. I haven’t always been an admirer–in fact, I positively detested her last outing, at the Duke. But everything on the Joyce program is worth seeing–cherishable, even. I didn’t love every moment, but I loved the spirit of it: and that’s the point–it has a spirit. Each piece establishes an atmosphere and then swims in it. Very deeply felt and lovingly crafted, with fantastic musical choices (Bartok and a whole bunch of Ligeti) and a lovely way of responding to them.
