Premier Premieres

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. 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. 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.
