Premier Premieres

It’s always a small thrill to be the first to hear a new work—especially when it looks to be genuinely good.

  1. 1. Esa-Pekka Salonen

    February 1 to 4 With the New York Philharmonic

    The L.A. Philharmonic conductor specializes in innovative performances; here, he conducts the world premiere of his own piano concerto, played by the virtuoso Yefim Bronfman.

  2. 2. Syren Modern Dance

    February 2 to 4 at Ailey Citigroup Theater

    The company premieres Abravanel, an intriguing piece inspired by the historic struggles, music, and journey of Sephardic Jews.

  3. 3. Armitage Gone! Dance

    February 6 to 11 at the Joyce

    Karole Armitage’s quirky choreography should prove especially compelling set against a Ligeti score and production design by Jeff Koons and David Salle.
