Zimmermann Trio

The Walt Disney Concert Hall audience will be taken over by dance and live music in Tero Saarinen’s take on Bernd Alois Zimmermann’s Cello Concerto en forme de pas de trois (1966), commissioned by the Los Angeles Philharmonic. The dance infused rendition will also mark the US premiere of Zimmermann’s composition. Principal Guest Conductor of the LA Phil, Susanna Mälkki, will direct the orchestra in the three scheduled performances.

Tero Saarinen’s first collaboration with the LA Phil will fill their 2265-seat concert hall with dance, live music and all-encompassing visuals. Saarinen’s creative team includes Tero Saarinen Company dancers as well as long-time collaborators, Bessie-award winning lighting designer Mikki Kunttu and costume designer Erika Turunen. Choreographer’s Assistant is Sini Länsivuori.
