About this Performance

Devonté Hynes defies categorization. Best known for his recordings under the name Blood Orange, Hynes has been a champion of the vulnerable or dispossessed as a songwriter while channeling his classical and R&B influences into something new. As a composer, he recently collaborated with Third Coast Percussion on the classical GRAMMY-nominated album FIELDS, in addition to scoring a number of projects for film and TV, including Luca Guadagnino’s We Are Who We Are for HBO, the film Queen & Slim, and more. The range of his musical appetites led The New York Times Magazine to describe him as a “polymath musician [who is] a whole new model of artist, daubing his signature sensibility over music, film, dance, and everything else he touches.”

In this special concert, Hynes joins forces with the Los Angeles Philharmonic conducted by Paolo Bortolameolli in new arrangements of his piano concerto, Happenings, and his cello concerto, Origin. Hynes also draws on his film scores in both solo and duo piano performances, joined by author and celebrated contemporary classical pianist Adam Tendler.
