Julia Adolphe’s violin concerto, Woven Loom, Silver Spindle had its world premiere this December with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, deftly guided by conductor Xian Zhang and with concertmaster Martin Chalifour playing. The piece “gleamed brightly” in Walt Disney Concert Hall (San Francisco Classical Review). Chalifour made “every interaction in Adolphe’s concerto feel like fascinating conversation” (Los Angeles Times).
