A hefty quantity of new and modern music appears in the 2013-14 season announcement by the New York Philharmonic. Particularly notable is the introduction of a new festival rubric, the NY Phil Biennial, which promises to present, over a ten-day stretch, "a veritable playground of new and recent music from all over the world." It recalls the Philharmonic's Horizons series of the eighties. Christopher Rouse, the orchestra's composer-in-residence, is featured several times, not least with the New York premiere of his huge Requiem; there will be a showing of 2001 with live orchestral accompaniment; and Mark-Anthony Turnage, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Magnus Lindberg, Osvaldo Golijov, Thomas Adès, Krzysztof Penderecki, Julian Anderson, Anthony Cheung, Sean Shepherd, and, on the night of his hundred birthday, Benjamin Britten are given the spotlight. On the downside, many of these choices are unsurprising, and, as Lisa Hirsch notes, no women have yet been included.
