About This Performance

The Los Angeles Philharmonic and New York’s electric Bang on a Can All-Stars join forces for Julia Wolfe’s new Flower Power, in which she addresses the radical societal upheaval of the 1960s, presented with suitably psychedelic visuals. Adams also leads the Grammy®-nominated symphonic work he composed for the LA Phil in 1998, when Esa-Pekka led the premiere.
