“No event has quite captured the prevailing ideology of classical music in America like the premiere of Rob Kapilow’s ‘Citypiece’ last night at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall ... The piece itself was offered as a musical monument, a collective act of music-making and listening intended to bring the city together.”

(on “D.C. Monuments”)
