Along with his twin brothers, Barry Gibb sang and played guitar in one of the hottest bands of the '70s and early '80s -- The Bee Gees. Together they produced smash hits like "Stayin' Alive," "How Deep Is Your Love" and "Night Fever" and provided the soundtrack for the film Saturday Night Fever. Gibb also wrote songs for other music icons, including Barbara Streisand, Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, Celine Dion and Michael Bolton. As the sole survivor of the Bee Gees, Gibb continues to tour solo and is often joined on stage by his son Stephen and his niece Samantha to sing hits from throughout his 50-year career. Learn More

This was a stupendous performance of one of Mahler's most difficult works. First class in every way. There were a few mis-steps from the trumpets and the beginning was a little rough - the strings sounded ragged and out of sync in the opening bars. But after a few moments, Salonen got them in all line and got some extraordinary playing from the entire orchestra. Salonen assembled a world-class array of soloists: Christine Brewer, Anthony Dean Griffey (subbing for Brandon Jovanovich), Eliza Van Den Heever, Elena Manistina, Nancy Maulstby (subbing for Monica Groop) Stacey Tappan, John Relyea and Alan Held. All were mostly wonderful but I have to note two: Brewer sounded horrible in the first movement but after warming up, sounded glorious with heart-stopping piano notes. Griffey stole the vocal show. I first saw him 10 years ago in Peter Grimes and the voice is consistently sweet and evenly produced but filled with passion and fire. A real treasure. One final note: Stacey Tappan made her appearance in the lights high above the orchestra and soloists. This was a sensational effect as she called upon the penitents to "Look up to find redemption". A fantastic evening.

It was a fabulous performance made all the more so because it wasn't the usual "light fare" you get from all orchestras during the summer. Salonen and the LA Phil are both very dedicated and it is always a pleasure to see them at work.
