The Lincoln Center Festival has announced an exceptionally rich musical lineup for 2013. As hinted below, the Köln ensemble musikFabrik will bring to town its production of "Michael's Journey around the Earth," from Stockhausen's Donnerstag, in a staging by Carlus Padrissa, of the Catalan theater group La Fura dels Baus. This continues a Stockhausen wave in New York, with last summer's Gruppen and the Oktophonie just concluded. Had Hurricane Sandy not struck, we would also have heard Joe Drew's presentation of Cosmic Pulses; let's hope it has another chance soon. No less notable is the local première of Toshio Hosokawa's Matsukaze, a German-language setting of the fifteenth-century Noh play Wind in the Pines. The same production will have been seen at the Spoleto Festival in May and June. (Will Robin covered the Berlin première for the New York Times.) Also, Lera Auerbach's a-cappella opera The Blind has a run of performances in the Kaplan Penthouse; John Zorn receives a sixtieth-birthday tribute; and Damon Albarn's Chinese-pop confection Monkey: Journey to the West takes over the so-called Koch Theater. Those of a certain age may recall Albarn as the lead singer of the rock band Blur.
