Quotes & Highlights

“a new and exciting young conductor….Gardner, barely in his thirties, would seem to have it all—energy, ideas, personal dynamism and an urgent, welling musicianship.” —The Washington Post

Description

“…shockingly difficult to play,” says John Adams of his Chamber Symphony, a fun-loving delight based on the tradition of American cartoons. The astonishing 32-year-old Edward Gardner takes on the challenge in his West Coast debut.

Revel in the artistry of LACO principal oboe Allan Vogel, “an oboe virtuoso with few equals and perhaps no superiors,” ( LA Times ) in Mozart’s only oboe concerto.

Also hear Britten’s Sinfonietta and Beethoven’s energetic Symphony No. 8.
