The orchestra also performs two more world premieres: Fields Have Ears (10), by Michael Pisaro, a piece for orchestra with piano (played by John Tilbury) inspired by standing on the edge of the Grand Canyon at night;
and Musique Sans Frontieres by Alvin Curran, a spectacular site-specific piece spanning 3 different locations and adding bands of bagpipes, brass, saxophones and a choir to the orchestra.
