 The horn is done. It’s had enough. It’s tired of bending to the will of the orchestra, always playing by their rules. And in David Adams’s new Concerto for Horn & Chamber Orchestra, it won’t have to. Here, the horn creates the universe - a big bang born of horn physics, and the orchestra had better hold on for dear life, because for this piece, untamed sounds are woven into the fabric of their world.  With elements of blues and funk, a 142-bar fugue, and over a half hour of music, you won’t want to miss this one-of a kind premier.
