We had a great time overall. Having said that, LA Phil had to change the program due to the illness of the conductor as well as the soloist. We do understand that these... continued

Description

Dec. 3: Green Umbrella Presents

L.A. Philharmonic Creative Chair John Adams showcases the imaginative breadth of the next generation of L.A. creators. Includes the world premiere of a new piece by experimental artist/singer Julia Holter.

*Dec. 5 & 7: Scheherezade

  • A solo violin is the voice of Scheherazade as she calms the Sultan’s menacing brass fanfares in Rimsky-Korsakov’s colorful epic. “All I had desired was that the hearer, if he liked my piece as symphonic music, should carry away the impression that this is beyond doubt an oriental narrative of some numerous and varied fairy-tale wonders and not merely four pieces played one after the other,” the composer wrote.

*Jan. 10-12: “New World” Symphony with Eschenbach

  • When Dvořák’s Ninth was premiered at Carnegie Hall, there was wild cheering after each movement. To this day, it remains one of the most popular symphonies in the repertoire. With its memorable melodies, vigorous rhythms, and perfectly balanced moments of drama and repose, it’s easy to hear why.

*Jan. 31-Feb. 1: Hilary Hahn

  • Always a welcome presence, the acclaimed violinist Hahn brings a relative rarity this time with her performance of Carl Nielsen’s violin concerto, which premiered in 1912. 

*Feb. 5: Venice Baroque Orchestra

  • French countertenor Philippe Jaroussky, celebrated for his virtuosic coloratura technique, is quickly becoming known for his interpretations of the Neapolitan opera composer – and teacher of Haydn – Nicola Porpora: check out Youtube to share the enthusiasm.

*Mar. 9: Ann Elise Smoot

  • Winner of the 1998 National Young Artists Competition of The American Guild of Organists, renowned organist Smoot has made critically acclaimed recordings at the Washington National Cathedral and on the two historic Silbermann organs in Alsace, France.

*Mar. 22: Hugh Masekela 75th Birthday Celebration

  • World-renowned trumpeter ‘bra’ Hugh Masekela is the essence of South African music. A phenomenal grace and power imbue his music, which ranges from funky township grooves to cooking jazz, soul and beyond. Special guests and friends join him for this birthday concert, a celebration of joyous and life-affirming proportions.
