Adams: Doctor Atomic
Internationally in demand for commissions and residencies, Finland’s Magnus Lindberg wrote this electrifying new concerto especially for Yefim Bronfman. “…fascinating orchestra textures and glorious piano writing that assumes Bronfman to be an octopus entangled in all 88 notes of the keyboard all the time. The piano barely survived but the wow factor was considerable.” — Los Angeles Times
Come for: John Adams created the Doctor Atomic Symphony from the music of his opera about the development of the first atomic bomb. It impressively balances the urgent energy of that process, with expressive music depicting the conflicted emotions of the project’s scientists.
And more: Kevin Lau unveils his second orchestral work as the TSO’s RBC Affiliate Composer.
