This crack group has immeasurably enriched New York's new-music scene in recent seasons, not least because its taste in contemporary composers is unfailingly sharp. So its Stone residency should prove a solid bet, even if you're not familiar with the names on a given night. On June 17, though, you probably won't need much in the way of blind faith: To kick things off, Talea cofounder and pianist Anthony Cheung partners with jazz and classical heavyweight Steve Lehman at 8pm for an evening of new chamber pieces. (Cheung plays solo during the 10pm set.) On June 18, violist Elizabeth Weisser presents the program "Densities and Light" at 8pm—while at 10pm, violinist Yuki Numata Resnick plays new works, in addition to selections by Bach. On June 19, cellist Chris Gross plays an all–Charles Wuorinen program at 8pm. At 10pm, bassoonist Adrian Morejon plays works by Salvatore Sciarrino, David Fulmer, Franck Bedrossian and Pierluigi Billone. And the 8pm set on June 22 will give you a chance to hear an Ives masterpiece—the "Concord" Second Piano Sonata—in a performance by Steven Beck. See full residency details at thestonenyc.com.
