50 Years of LACO continues with eminent 93-year-old pianist Menahem Pressler, “a national treasure” (Los Angeles Times), performing Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23 in A Major under the baton of guest conductor Thomas Dausgaard in his second LACO appearance in two seasons. Dausgaard, principal conductor of the Swedish Chamber Orchestra, chief conductor designate of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and principal guest conductor of the Seattle Symphony, also conducts a selection of Brahms’s dances and waltzes, followed by Mozart’s Symphony No. 41 in C Major, “Jupiter,” the composer’s final and longest symphony. The latter is the second of LACO’s three “Mozart in Focus” performances this season. Pressler, founding member and pianist of the Beaux Arts Trio, has established himself among the world’s most distinguished and honored musicians with a career that spans almost six decades. Now in his ninth decade, he continues to captivate audiences throughout the world as performer and pedagogue, performing to great critical acclaim while maintaining a dedicated and robust teaching career.

Concert Preludes are fun, informative and free to all ticket holders.
