An all-star lineup -- including David Byrne, Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), Pat Mahoney (LCD Soundsystem), Kele Okereke (Bloc Party), Money Mark, Joshua Redman, Sinkane and the legendary Lijadu Sisters of Nigeria in their first live performance in 30 years -- takes the stage at the Greek to perform the futuristic, synth-heavy electronic music of elusive Nigerian artist William Onyeabor. The evening begins with a DJ set by special guest Wooden Wisdom (Elijah Wood & Zach Cowie). Onyeabor self-released eight nearly impossible-to-find albums between 1978 and 1985 in Nigeria, but after becoming a born-again Christian turned his back on his work and refused to speak about it for nearly three decades. Last year, after a five-year odyssey to track down Onyeabor and secure his permission to release his music, the Luaka Bop label issued World Psychedelic Classics 5: Who Is William Onyeabor? The album was named one of Time magazine's top ten albums of the year and Pitchfork's Best Reissue of the Year 2013. Even now, after the album's enormous success, the artist's life story remains a mystery -- and he seems content to keep it that way. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
“…the fine American pianist Jeffrey Kahane…brought sparkle and imagination…[his] playing abounds with spontaneity.” —The New York Times
Joanne Pearce Martin, “…unusual fervor and fluency…propulsive, interactive pianism.” —Los Angeles Times
A magnificent display at the keyboard in this once-in-a-lifetime event. Joanne Pearce Martin joins Jeffrey Kahane for the concerto for two pianos that Mozart performed with his sister. Mozart wrote a third piano part for his concerto No. 7 for a young performer. Appropriately, John Chen, an outstanding student of the Colburn School, has been selected to make his LACO debut alongside our seasoned professionals. Kahane opens the program with the 1782 concerto Mozart described as “very brilliant, pleasing to the ear, and natural,” and the concert culminates in the darkened mood of concerto No. 24.
