Adès’ ongoing relationship with the Los Angeles Philharmonic continues with another composer focus, following several other successful presentations of his music. 

The Spring 2011 tribute begins with the West Coast premiere of his second string quartet, The Four Quarters on March 14, only two days after its Carnegie Hall world premiere on March 12 (Carnegie Hall commissioned it).  In addition, Adès conducts his piano concerto In Seven Days (a Los Angeles Philharmonic commission) and the new work for Miami. Other featured pieces are: Concerto Conciso, These Premises Are Alarmed and his Violin Concerto.  As pianist Adès performs his virtuosic Concert Paraphrase on Powder Her Face on 5 April.
