There's a distinct contemporary American accent to the annual summer music festival in La Jolla this year. SummerFest music director Cho-Liang (Jimmy) Lin has programmed two world premieres--John Harbison's Quartet No. 4 and Esa-Pekka Salonen's "Lachen Verlernt" (Laughing Unlearned). He's also invited those two composers plus composer John Adams to participate in SummerFest, which runs Wednesday through Aug. 18. "Audiences will be captivated by what great stuff is being written today," Lin said.
