The virtuosity and playfulness here are familiar from other Adams finales, with the interplay between rollicking syncopation, chirping woodwinds, off-beat accents of brass, loping stride bass, a battery of percussion, and a brilliantly energetic piano
World renowned piano virtuoso Yuja Wang joins forces with Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Philharmonic to bring celebrated American composer John Adams' brand new, world premiere work 'Must The Devil Have All The Good Tunes?' to the stage for four special performances only this winter. The third of Adams' piano concertos, the piece's title was inspired by an article about Dorothy Day Adams spotted in an old New Yorker magazine.
Beginning with a gospel-like riff played bass register, the concerto wildly builds into zigzagging chromatic lines that emphasise a dance-like dialogue between the piano and the orchestra. The second section begins serenely with a delicate piano solo before bursting into a restless melody Adams says was directly inspired by Wang's passionate performance style. Its rousing finale section is filled with a virtuosity and playfulness further suited to Wang.
