During the 2023-24 season Anthony performs "You Have the Right to Remain Silent," by 2020 Pulitzer Prize winning composer Anthony Davis with the Los Angeles Philharmonic & John Adams; the Britten Sinfonia as part of his Milton Court Artist Residency at the Barbican, and with the Oakland Symphony & Jeri Lynne Johnson.
Anthony Davis has said parts of "You Have the Right to Remain Silent," became the basis for his "The Central Park Five," for which he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize. "You Have the Right to Remain Silent" was partially inspired by an experience Davis had when he was pulled over by the police and held at gunpoint for 45 minutes because he “matched the description” of a suspect fleeing a robbery. In the work the musicians recite the Miranda rights while playing.
Previously, Anthony performed "You Have the Right to Remain Silent," with the Boston Symphony Orchestra & Thomas Wilkins; the Detroit Symphony Orchestra & N’Zir McFadden; the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra & Louis Langrée; the New York Philharmonic & Dalia Stasevska, and The New World Symphony & Kazem Abdullah.
