Lincoln Center's White Light Festival has announced its offerings for 2012. William Christie will lead Les Arts Florissants in Charpentier motets; Paul Lewis, placing himself in risky competition with Mitsuko Uchida, will essay the last three sonatas of Schubert; Emanuel Ax tunes in; Heiner Goebbels returns to the city; Cameron Carpenter plays organ works of Bach; Akram Khan and Fabulous Beast head a dance contingent; Mary Chapin Carpenter and the Latvian Radio Choir sing (not together); and Esa-Pekka Salonen and the Philhamonia present the Mahler Ninth. It's especially good to see Joseph Drew and his Analog Arts project given a high-profile gig. I've been following Drew's work for years, often from afar, and last fall I caught his superb presentation of Stockhausen's Cosmic Pulses at the old ISSUE Project Room. (See Seth Colter Walls for a full report.) In all, it looks to be another variegated yet through-composed White Light season.
