I saw one of their warm-up shows for this event in Blacksburg a month ago (the program was the same except they played Yo Shakespeare in place of the Adams piece). I think the way they presented the music made it a lot more interesting than the usual chamber music presentation. The Shaggs song was silly if technically impressive, but the rest of the program was very well chosen, I thought.

Honestly, after the first "moving around" piece I closed my eyes any time they started to move around again. The playing was so good, so tight that I found the visuals distracting.

On the other hand, new music needs all the gimmicks it can get.
