Compare and Contrast 15

Sarah Cahill brings A Sweeter Music to NYC, providing the rare opportunity for Steve Smith to review a program nearly identical to the one I reviewed in Berkeley. It looks as though she swapped out the dreadful Yoko Ono piece for what must be a superior Kyle Gann work.
Note that the Times, a print rag, imposes space constraints to which I'm not subject. I always wish Steve's elegant and evocative reviews were given more space, but typical Times reviews run only 350 to 400 words. SFCV asks for 600 to 800, which, erm, I exceed on a regular basis.
