LA Phil Etudes with John Adams

Green Umbrella New Music Series

Tue / Jan 28, 2025 - 8:00PM


About this Performance

John and Samantha Williams Creative Chair John Adams returns for the second installment of the LA Phil Etudes. The project invites a wide range of leading composers to create new solo etudes, each performed by an LA Phil musician, which showcases their distinct voices and the possibility of their chosen instrument. The theme of soloist spotlight continues with Donnacha Dennehy’s threshold-pushing piano concerto Limina and Missy Mazzoli’s bass concerto, Dark with Excessive Bright, which borrows its name from Milton’s Paradise Lost and slips between centuries with Mazzoli’s blend of new ideas and influences. Plus, Adams leads a world premiere by Noah Jenkins, whose music explores everything from drones to audio phenomena.
