New works from Adams, Saariaho

Playbill reports that Carnegie Hall's 2006-2007 season "will feature an unusually high number of commissions: the works of ten established figures (such as John Adams, Kaija Saariaho and Elliott Carter) and ten emerging composers in their 20s and 30s will be premiered throughout the year. The younger composers will be mentored through the Weill Music Institute Professional Training Workshops." The article says the Emerson String Quartet will perform a new quartet by Saariaho, while Adams will mark his 60th birthday by premiering his Doctor Atomic symphony.
