The Los Angeles Philharmonic under artistic director Gustavo Dudamel performs a New York premiere by composer John Adams, written especially for “preternaturally gifted” pianist Yuja Wang (New York Times). Following this bewitching new piano concerto, the orchestra incites further uproar with Stravinsky’s boundary-breaking Rite of Spring, which sparked a riot at its 1913 Paris premiere.
“Yuja Wang is now at the height of her powers.”– Economist
“An artist with poetry as well as fire in her soul.”– Financial Times
“High-octane thrills.”– Washington Post on Wang's performance of Adams's Must the Devil Have All the Good Tunes?
