Talea is honored to have been selected by George Lewis for ArtForum’s Best Concerts of 2011. Olga Neuwirth’s Portrait from May 24, 2011 was selected and featured in the December issue of ArtForum. Go pick up an issue!

“Olga Neuwirth’s audacious yet subtle use of timbre always puts me on the edge of my seat, and I loved the Austrian Cultural Forum-sponsored performance of her music by the Talea Ensemble, one of today’s hot contemporary music bands. In the midconcert discussion, she confessed to her original intent to become a jazz trumpeter after listening to- who else? Miles Davis.”

-George Lewis, ArtForum December 2011
