Osvaldo Golijov was meant to deliver his new concerto for a world premiere by the Los Angeles Philharmonic in March 2011. He failed.
The next deadline was Berlin Philharmonic in March this year. Missed again.
Now he’s told the London Symphony Orchestra they won’t get it next month, either.
Meantime, the intended soloist Leonidas Kavakos is going around playing other stuff. He must be wondering if the Goli work is worth waiting for any longer.
