About This Performance
In 1984, the leading Japanese composer of the 20th century, T?ru Takemitsu, composed riverrun, a piano concerto inspired by James Joyce’s Finnegan’s Wake, for Peter Serkin and the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Piano writing in the mold of Liszt or Brahms is set among orchestral sonorities of Bergian chromaticism or Messiaen-like richness. Stravinsky’s colorful and most popular work closes the concert.
