Will 24th centurians look back on what we call "new music" as the inevitable spawn of Beethoven, Mozart, and Bach, or will they see it as a radical break with the past? Either way, we're pretty sure the works of John Cage, Steve Reich, and Harry Partch will live on, and particularly discriminating types would add James Tenney's compositions to that list. Tenney was a living god to some. He's now a dead one, having passed away about a year ago. Local n-m ensemble Crossing 32nd Street pays homage to the composer and his oeuvre with the concert.
