New York Times Review of the Xanthos Ensemble

The Xanthos Ensemble received a rave review from Steve Smith of the New York Times entitled Modernism, Rapid-Fire or Dreamy. The review was of their New York City concert at Roulette on May 24th, 2008, which featured a world premiere, and a New York premiere, with most of the works on the concert presented by the entire ensemble. Steve Smith described the "young, accomplished members of the Xanthos Ensemble of Boston, which came to Roulette in SoHo on Saturday night with a program featuring works by three uncompromising modernists ... and in the hands of musicians so copiously skilled and confident, this undeniably challenging music had genuine appeal."
