The Time’s Arrow festival continues its focus on the complete works of Austrian serialist composer Anton Webern begun last fall. In keeping with the signature juxtaposition of early and modern music which is the trademark of the series, the festival presents Webern’s works along with later composers he inspired, including György Ligeti, Heinz Holliger, Christopher Rouse, Marti Epstein and more. NOVUS NY will anchor most of the performances, joined for the finale by The Choir of Trinity Wall Street and Downtown Voices in a concert that includes Brahms Requiem. Special guests Sandbox Percussion will perform the first concert of the series on June 18
