Dedicated to the performance of new and lesser-known works composed for their instrument, Piano Spheres spotlights one of its principal musicians, the acclaimed Susan Svrcek, who'll premiere a piece written especially for her. Famed for her wide-ranging repertoire, Svrcek's had a stellar performing and teaching career in Southern California and beyond, since making her debut at New York's Carnegie Hall. For this recital, she'll play an audience favorite by Olivier Messiaen, "Les offrandes oubliées," along with selections from James Wilding's Bits 'n' Pieces and Béla Bartók's Improvisations on Hungarian Peasant Songs, Op. 20. She'll also debut the piece her husband, noted composer Frederick Lesemann, penned for her, Preludes After a Tenor by Guillaume Dufay. Learn More

What a great evening. Arrived to hear another fantastic lecture by Mr. Conlon. The
performance was amazing. The cast and orchestra presented a great performance; James Conlon is a LA treasure. It was particularly special to hear and see an opera
that I did not know and had not seen.
