As so many publications print "best of" lists at the end of each year, the Chicago Classical Review is no exception. Critic Lawrence A. Johnson penned "The Top 10 Performances of 2013" and included a performance by NIU School of Music Professor Greg Beyer and NIU music alumna Mabel Kwan (who are members of Ensemble Dal Niente as noted in the article). Greg and Mabel's performance of Karlheinz Stockhausen's "Kontakte" earned them this notoriety.
As you'll undoubtedly note, the performance is among those by such noted artists as Riccardo Muti and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra as well as Esa-Pekka Salonen and Yo-Yo Ma.
Congratulations, Greg and Mabel!
