Koussevitzky Grant Relights Classical Music's Fading Candle

Emily B. at Fractured Atlas wrote that the Momenta Quartet
in February 2009. . .was one of only seven recipients of the prestigious Koussevitzky Music Fund Grant to commission a new work of classical music. Their commitment to pairing the music of contemporary composers — they have given over 40 world premieres in the last five years — with that of masters from the past sets this talented group apart.
