Yuja lines up another world premieremain
After John Adams in LA, she’s getting her fingers around a piano concerto by Teddy Abrams, music director in Louisville.
From the PR stuff:
Formerly a classmate of Abrams at the Curtis Institute of Music, she appeared with the orchestra in 2017 – the same year she was named “Artist of the Year” by Musical America – to celebrate its 80th anniversary with a rapturously received performance of Rachmaninoff’s Fourth Piano Concerto. She performs the world premiere of Abrams’s new Piano Concerto, written expressly for her, on a program that also includes Rachmaninoff’s Tchaikovsky-inspired Symphony No. 2 (Jan 8).
