Again, the L.A. Chamber Orchestra put on an excellent concert. The premier of the Puts Piano Concerto was interesting although not a piece of music I would be interested in hearing again. On the other hand the Beethoven 6th Symphony was very, very good.

- Beethoven Symphony No. 6 in F major, “Pastoral”
Be there when Jeffrey Kahane premieres the first-ever concerto written specifically for him to play and conduct from the piano. The Handel, led by Margaret Batjer, showcases the versatility and range of the orchestra’s strings, and Beethoven’s beloved “Pastoral” Symphony brings LACO’s season to a joyful close.
Kevin Puts, hailed as “one of the best young composers in America,” is the 2007-08 Sound Investment composer. He describes his sound as “pictorial or evocative” and his style as “Neo-Romantic with elements of minimalism.”
Puts says that he has watched Jeffrey Kahane work with orchestras, especially as a soloist-conductor, and he is excited about writing a piece especially for that dual role. “Jeffrey Kahane has this way of bringing everybody together…he reaches out to the players…for Jeff, it’s not about this power trip, being a conductor, it has only to do with making music.”
