I love getting to play new music. This week I am playing with the Louisiana Philharmonic for the world premiere of Stephen Dankner’s Symphony #8. This will be the third subscription series program I have played with the LPO in the last few months, and each program has had a piece by a living composer, and the composer has been present each time as well. I think it is fabulous that this orchestra has the courage to program new music.
The LPO website has cool podcasts that give a little overview of each concert, often with conversations with composer or guest soloists. Check out this week’s here:“Music of the Spheres” LPOd | Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra
