“The final piece on the program, Emily Koh’s synpunkt, for alto flute/piccolo, clarinet/bass clarinet and percussion, played out like an intense conversation between the players. Flutist Sue-Ellen Tcherepnin and clarinetist Katherine Matasy traded motifs back and forth like clever debaters, while percussionist Schulz edged his way into full participation. Like many conversations, synpunkt had a tendency to wander. Yet the emergence of interesting timbres, like Tcherepnin’s humming into the flute, and engaging motifs, like Matasy’s lovely solo in the third section, kept the audience’s interest.”
