Here you can find a partial list of the Premieres the U.S. orchestras are undertaking:

The New York Philharmonic has announced its 2015-16 season. The principal news is that Esa-Pekka Salonen is beginning a term as composer-in-residence, presiding over a Messiaen series in March of next year and introducing a new large-scale orchestral piece the following June, as part of the second edition of the Biennial. Also notable: the première of an Andrew Norman piano concerto on Dec. 10, 2015

Some meaty offerings at this summer’s Lincoln Center Festival: the celebrated Musik Fabrik production of Partch’sDelusion of the Fury, a Danny Elfman / Tim Burton evening, a Yarn/Wire program including works of Misato Mochizuki, Raphaël Cendo, and Tristan Murail, and the Cleveland Orchestra playing Strauss’s Daphne

The Detroit Symphony has announced a raft of premières for 2015-16: Mohammed Fairouz, Gabriela Lena Frank, Aaron Jay Kernis, Tod Machover, Sarah Kirkland Snider, and Leonard Slatkin

Not to be outdone, the Cincinnati Symphony is giving seven world premières next season: works of Sebastian Currier, Thierry Escaich, Zhou Tian, Gunther Schuller (his Symphonic Triptych), Jonathan Bailey Holland, Kristin Kuster, and T.J. Cole.
