Bar-only (hoppin' spot) review. Ironically BAD icky-sweet fruity marg mix. Excellent happy hour drink prices. Interesting infused spirits, including vodka with peppers, cilantro, green onion and lime (for bloody marys, but we tried a delicious sip). $

The 82-year-old composer was in the United States for his first visit. He's best known for Messages of the Late Miss R.V. Troussova (1976-80) for chamber ensemble and soprano, here the piercing Natalia Zagorinskaya. Two packed Zankel Hall evenings ended with the composer playing some of his own music (plus Bach and Bartók) with his wife, Márta, sitting side by side at an upright piano.
