Captive parking. $12.00. Considering most L.A. parking fees are pretty reasonable, even the Chandler Pavilion UCLA has a lot of nerve charging for that charge for parking off-hours in what is largely an empty lot.

Quotes & Highlights

Mr. Accardo was the recipient of the Cavaliere di Gran Croce, Italy’s highest honor, from the President of Italy in 1982.
“Italy’s violin virtuoso par excellence.” —Stereo Review

Description

Surrender to the sweetness of the youthful Mozart, the sensual tango of Piazzolla, and Schoenberg’s lush outpouring of erotic love in the late Romantic masterpiece once described as “the score of Tristan und Isolde smeared while the ink was still wet.”

Salvatore Accardo displays his masterful technique and musicality in this rare outing as conductor and soloist.

In 1987, Accardo made a highly praised debut as an opera conductor in a new production of Rossini’s L’occasione fa il ladro at the Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro. He has conducted at opera houses in Rome, Lille, and Naples.

Mozart:

Violin Concerto No. 3 in G major (Strassburg)

Piazzolla:

Three pieces for solo violin and strings

Schoenberg:

Verklaerte Nacht (Transfigured Night)
