On Cello Concerto No.2: "Haunting and deeply beautiful, it is a concerto for our time." Read the Review Here.
Next up, this week's West Coast Premiere performances of Symphony No.9 in Los Angeles at Disney Concert Hall with the LA Philharmonic under the direction of John Adams.
I had the occasion and privilege of hearing the piece at Carnegie Hall with the American Composers Orchestra under Davies in January, as well as co-producing the OMM recording. I can't wait to hear what the LA Phil, with its particular skills and sensibilities brings to the piece. I can be said also that John Adams knows a thing or two about this type of music.
I'll do my best to report from the road. Thursday looks pretty sold out. Word is Glass will taking a detour from his current tour and will be attending Friday's performance. The CD of Symphony No.9 will be released a week from tomorrow on April 10 at Amazon, though for those attending the performances, copies will be available at the LA Phil Store in Disney Hall.
