Celebrate the grittiness and style of film noir at a beautiful 1925 movie palace -- the historic Alex Theatre in Glendale -- with a double dose of films featuring car chases and gun-toting dames aplenty. In Gun Crazy, a man becomes obsessed with a sharpshooting femme fatale, leading them both down a dark road of armed robbery, car theft and murder. This essential film noir was filmed on location in Los Angeles, including a bank robbery scene shot in nearby Montrose. The Lineup, set in 1958 San Francisco, stars Eli Wallach as the maniacal leader of a gang in mad pursuit of a group of innocent tourists who've had heroin stashed in their luggage. The Lineup was directed by Don Siegel, who would go on to direct such high-profile films as Dirty Harry. Learn More

AS usual an excellent performance by the LACO. The second half of the concert featured an American premier of an orchestration of a Brahms trio. I was really impressed. My only complaint was that the piece was too long, by about 15 minutes and some judicious editing will make this a standard piece.
Mozart: Symphony No. 33 in B-flat major
Mozart: Bassoon Concerto in B-flat major
Brahms/Swensen: Sinfonia in B (original 1854 version of Trio, Op. 8)
Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra
Joseph Swensen, conductor
Kenneth Munday, bassoon
Recapture the exuberance of youth with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra: Mozart composed his Symphony No. 33 at the age of 24 and the charming Bassoon Concerto when he was just 18! Kenneth Munday, principal bassoonist for the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, will perform this concerto. Joseph Swensen will guest conduct Sinfonia in B, his arrangement for chamber orchestra of the Brahms Piano Trio. Swensen notes that his orchestration reflects the romantic and surprisingly radical mentality of 21-year-old original composer Brahms.
Arrive early for a concert prelude one hour before the concert to hear the stories behind the music with guest conductor Joseph Swensen.
