Classic Arts News   MoMA's 2006 Summergarden Series to Offer Nothing but Premieres
The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City, in conjunction with The Juilliard School, is offering three programs of premieres for this year's Summergarden series. Each work performed will be new to New York; most will be U.S. or Western Hemisphere premieres as well.

The series opens on July 9 with new music for violin, cello and piano (in various combinations) by Henrik Strindberg, Agust‹n Fernšndez, Eric Tanguy and Patrick Zimmerli.

On July 23, the New Juilliard Ensemble will offer works for mixed ensembles by Pablo Ortiz, Betty Olivero, Alberto Colla, Philip Carlsen, Wen Deqing and Martin Butler. The August 6 program includes string quartets by Tigran Ayvazyan, Ben-Zion Orgad, Carl Vine, John Psathas and Lera Auerbach, as well as a world premiere by Elliott Sharp.

Three additional concerts will be co-produced by MoMA and Jazz at Lincoln Center, featuring Steve Coleman and Five Elements (July 16), the Marty Ehrlich Sextet (July 30) and Brandon Ross and Blazing Beauty (August 30).

All Summergarden concerts are free and take place on Sundays at 8 p.m. in MoMA's Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden. The series has run in conjunction with The Juilliard School, with Joel Sachs as artistic director, since 1993.
