Los Angeles Times : Best of 2015 | Classical music 2015 highlights : Vortex Temporum by AT De Keersmaeker.


Choreographer as musician of the year: Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker takes the honors with "Vortex," which was the last of the Flemish choreographer's four-evening retrospective, also at UCLA. Set to an acoustically evanescent score by the French Spectralist Gérard Grisey, this became an interaction between movement and music-making of a new sort, thanks in great part to the astonishing Belgian new-music group Ictus, performing by memory and becoming a strikingly indispensable part of the action.
