It all kicks off with Eötvös’s personal participation in FIERCE BEAUTY, the January 12 edition of contemporary music series Jacaranda, Music at the Edge. He’ll conduct the U.S. premiere of his Schiller: Energische Schoenheit, a work co-commissioned by the series through the generosity of L.A. patrons David & Margaret Barry.
The Jacaranda concert also includes two works by the great Hungarian modernist Gyorgy Ligeti.
Next up, at Disney Concert Hall, a Green Umbrella staging of Eötvös’s operatic setting of Tony Kushner‘s Angels in America.
Then return to Disney Hall for an all-Hungarian program by the Los Angeles Philharmonic (includes Kodaly and Bartok), which will feature the world premiere of Eötvös’s Concerto for Violin and Chamber Orchestra performed by Midori.
