Lera Auerbach in Boston

On 26 October 2003, the world premiere of Auerbach's "Last Letter" for soprano, violoncello and piano took place in the Berkshires (near Boston), a work commissioned by the concert organisers "Close Encounters with Music." The interpreters were Maureen O'Flynn (soprano), Yehuda Hanani (violoncello) and Lera Auerbach (piano).

In November 2003 a CD was issued by Centaur Records on which Grigory Kalinovsky (violin) and Lera Auerbach (piano) have recorded Five Piano Preludes of Dmitri Shostakovich from Opus 34 arranged for violin and piano by Auerbach. Moreover, this new issue contains all of the piano preludes from Shostakovichs opus 34 cycle adapted by Zyganov.

From 22 January until 22 February 2004 Lera Auerbach was in Los Angeles, where she gave concerts, lectures and master classes during her activity as composer-in residence with the American Youth Orchestra. The culmination of her stay was the world premiere of her First Violin Concerto on 22 February 2004.
