LA PHIL PROGRAM UPDATE: THE HILLBORG COMMISSION SET TO BE PERFORMED BY EMANUEL AX AND YO-YO MA WILL BE POSTPONED TO A FUTURE SEASON
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 2014, AT 8 PM
Due to preparation time constraints, Emanuel Ax and Yo-Yo Ma will not perform the LA Phil-commissioned new work by Anders Hillborg originally programmed for the LA Phil February 25 recital at Walt Disney Concert Hall, but will instead perform Brahms’ Cello Sonata in D major, Op. 78. The recital, part of the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Colburn Celebrity Recital series, is one of four programs that comprise the Ax Brahms Project. For this mini-festival, Ax invited several of today’s top composers to create pieces to be paired with Brahms’ timeless chamber works.
The complete program is as follows:
Emanuel Ax, piano
Yo-Yo Ma, cello
BRAHMS Cello Sonata No. 1 in E minor, Op. 38
BRAHMS Cello Sonata in D major, Op. 78
Brett DEAN Hommage à Brahms (West Coast premiere, LA Phil co-commission)
BRAHMS Cello Sonata No. 2 in F major, Op. 99
