John Adams conducts the Orchestra Academy
Within the scope of his Berliner Philharmoniker residency, the composer and conductor John Adams will work on pieces by contemporary American composers with the scholars of the Orchestra Academy: Andrew Norman’s orchestral work Try, which takes as its subject the process of trial and error; Timo Andres’s piano concerto The Blind Banister; Last Round, Osvaldo Golijov’s homage to Astor Piazzolla; as well as Adams’s Chamber Symphony, which fades away like a hymn. In its instrumentation it follows Schoenberg’s famous Chamber Symphony.
