Description

Ignat Solzhenitsyn, conductor & piano

*

*MOZART Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor, K. 466

LUTOSŁAWSKI Musique funèbre (“Funeral Music”)

HAYDN Symphony No. 103 in E-flat major, “Drum Roll”

A free pre-concert lecture begins at 7:00pm.

Drum roll, please! The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra proudly presents a dramatic range of musical themes—from grandeur and majesty to poignancy and passion. Ignat Solzhenitsyn, principal guest conductor of the Moscow Symphony Orchestra and talented son of the famous Russian novelist, leads the Orchestra in Musique funèbre, Lutoslawski’s immensely powerful tribute to Bartók, and conducts the expressive Mozart Piano Concerto No. 20 from the keyboard. The concert ends with a bang — the long roll of the timpani announcing Haydn’s joyous 103rd Symphony, one of the composer’s finest masterpieces.
