Excellent concert, good seats. Parking is easy. The only problem with the venue is that the air conditioning is way too cold.

Description

Watch sparks fly when two tremendous musical minds meet Jeffrey Kahane and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra. Christopher Theofanidis is “an unusually skilled, communicative composer” (The Baltimore Sun), and LACO performs the world premiere of his piece,_ Radiant Mind_. Pianist Jonathan Biss brings intensity and prowess beyond his years to his playing, showcasing his talent with Schumann’s Piano Concerto in A minor. LACO’s season of celebration closes with more fireworks through de Falla’s Ritual Fire Dance from El amor brujo and Ginastera’s Variaciones concertantes—two challenging pieces that highlight the “imagination, humor and taken-for-granted virtuosity… [that makes LACO] a delight to hear.” (Los Angeles Times)
