This is the US premiere of "Juggler in Paradise"; Ms. Koh gave the British premiere last season at the Proms. She speaks with Classical WETA morning host David Ginder about the joys of discovering a new piece and new composer, Thomas's brilliant orchestration and big musical gestures, and the logic of co-commissions.
