Composer, conductor, and creative thinker — John Adams occupies a unique position in the world of music. His works stand out among contemporary classical compositions for their depth of expression, brilliance of sound, and the profoundly humanist nature of their themes. Spanning more than three decades, his works such as Harmonielehre, Shaker Loops, El Niño, and Nixon in China are among the most performed of all contemporary classical music.
Pianist and composer
Timo Andres is a composer and pianist who grew up in rural Connecticut and lives in Brooklyn, NY. Notable works include Everything Happens So Much for the Boston Symphony; Strong Language for the Takács Quartet, commissioned by Carnegie Hall and the Shriver Hall Concert Series; Steady Hand, a two-piano concerto commissioned by the Britten Sinfonia premiered at the Barbican by Andres and David Kaplan; and The Blind Banister, a concerto for Jonathan Biss, which was a 2016 Pulitzer Prize Finalist.
The Festival Fellows positions were filled by the Festival through an invitation-only audition process in collaboration with faculty at America’s top conservatories. Chava Appiah, Ka-Yeon Lee, Jaquelyn O’Brien, and James Zabawa-Martinez are all from New World Symphony, an educational program that helps musicians gain orchestral experience after they complete undergraduate or graduate studies. All Fellows receive professional experience working in an intensive environment comparable to that of a full-time orchestra.
