A local group's out-of-town performance has garnered some national recognition.

The St. Louis Symphony's performance at Carnegie Hall in New York this past Saturday was featured in The New York Times and given a "rave review."

The performance reviewed was of Thomas Adès’ violin concerto, “Concentric Paths" with Leila Josefowicz as the featured soloist.

The Times' Zachary Woolfe wrote: "The orchestra’s clear, transparent textures emphasized the work’s debt to the Baroque, and Ms. Josefowicz’s reedy tone blended in beautifully."
