The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center was excited about its new piece. The program notes for its concert on Sunday afternoon included thoughts from Fred Sherry, the cellist, about playing a new work. Before the performance, Wu Han, one of the organization's artistic directors, spoke from the stage, invoking the most famous premiere of modern times, Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring," in 1913. The audience, she suggested, would be able to say, "I was there when Melinda Wagner's piece 'Four Settings' had its New York premiere."
