Description

Lutoslawski Centenary: Salonen Conducts Beethoven

November 30-December 2, 2012

As a cabaret pianist on the run from the Nazis in occupied Warsaw and then a staunchly independent composer denounced by Communist party apparatchiks, Witold Lutoslawski survived some of the 20th-century’s grimmest years, and his cultural importance seems only to have grown since his death. Lutoslawski became a close artistic associate of the LA Phil and Esa-Pekka Salonen in the last decade of his life.

Artists:

Los Angeles Philharmonic

Esa-Pekka Salonen, conductor

Program:

Beethoven: King Stephen Overture

Lutoslawski: Symphony No. 1

Lutoslawski: Fanfare for the Los Angeles Philharmonic

Beethoven: Symphony No. 2

*_*Lutosławski Centenary: Salonen Conducts Tchaikovsky, Schumann & More *_

December 7-9, 2012

Shadows and night haunt this rich program, from the complex counterpoint and flickering chiaroscuro of Salonen’s Nyx (Greek goddess of the night), through Schumann’s equally mercurial Piano Concerto and Lutosławski’s Surrealist vocal nocturne, to the swirling chromatic winds tossing Dante’s adulterous lovers in Tchaikovsky’s tone poem.

Artists:

Los Angeles Philharmonic

Esa-Pekka Salonen, conductor

David Fray, piano

Gerald Finley, baritone

Salonen: Nyx (West Coast premiere)

Schumann: Piano Concerto

Lutoslawski: Les espaces du sommeil

Tchaikovsky: Francesca da Rimini
