Links: Weekend roundup -- Ariel Quartet, Juho Pohjonen, BSO Sierra work, and more

By various critics

In Monday's Washington Post:

Ariel Quartet's curiously flat recital, by Stephen Brookes.

Pianist Juho Pohjonen pinch-hits successfully at WPAS (scroll down), by Robert Battey.

BSO offers new Roberto Sierra work, by Joe Banno.
Sierra's Sinfonia No. 4 was the result of a commissioning consortium formed by 12 orchestras and spearheaded by the organization Sphinx which aims to commission a work by a black or Latino composer every year. The BSO is part of the consortium; the sinfonia will next be heard in Richmond and Detroit. Sierra's 2009 piece was the first commission by the consortium; the second was "Dancers, Dreamers and Presidents" by Daniel Bernard Roumain, which had its world premiere last fall.

Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie offers competence but mushiness, by Robert Battey.

Trio Bolero offers skilful transcriptions for guitar (scroll down), by Stephen Brookes.

National Chamber Ensemble offers works by Lowell Lieberman (scroll down), by Charles T. Downey.
The three-year-old group is now ensemble-in-residence at Arlington's new Artisphere.

David Jolley showcases horn in interesting American program (scroll down), by Cecelia Porter.
