Los Angeles Philharmonic with conductor Pablo Heras-Casado

Focus on Eötvös will include the world premiere of his Concerto for Violin and Chamber Orchestra as well as a Green Umbrella staging of his operatic setting of Tony Kushner's Angels in America.

Focus on Eötvös: Angels in America
On January 15th at 8:00 pm
In his Pulitzer-winning two-part play Angels in America, Tony Kushner defined an era. Peter Eötvös’ setting of this powerful, human depiction of the AIDS epidemic is truly theatrical music, according to The New York Times.
Artists: LA Phil New Music Group; Pablo Heras-Casado, conductor; David Gately, stage director; David Adam Moore, (Prior Walter) baritone; Jonas Olofsson, (Louis Ironson) tenor; Omar Ebrahim, (Joseph Pitt) baritone; Brian Asawa, (Mr. Lies) countertenor; Janice Hall, (Hannah) soprano; Kelly Anderson, (Roy Cohn) baritone; Julia Migenes, (Harper Pitt) mezzo-soprano; Measha Brueggergosman, (Angel) soprano.
Focus on Eötvös: Midori Plays Eötvös
On January 18-20
Concerto is, shall we say, a term of contention. The word’s origins include the contrasting elements of competition and combination. Peter Eötvös’ new concerto explores the more common form of the genre, a striving solo virtuoso with/against the orchestra. The vibrant and versatile spanish conductor leads Bartók’s wonderful and virtuosic orchestral showpiece.
Artists: Los Angeles Philharmonic; Pablo Heras-Casado, conductor; Midori, violin.
Program: KODÁLY: Háry János Suite; EÖTVÖS: DoReMi, a Concerto for Violin and Orchestra (world premiere, LA Phil commission); BARTÓK: Concerto for Orchestra.
