Lime Jello Marshmallow Cottage Cheese Surprise?! A more interesting piece about food might not exist. Suggested by music director Jeffrey Kahane for Westside Connections 2 with Jonathan Gold, the William Bolcom piece is “almost like a rap song” according to concertmaster Margaret Batjer and next Thursday evening features soprano Elissa Johnston letting you in on a secret recipe.
Listen-in to the latest LACO pre-concert podcast, featuring Margaret Batjer in discussion with KUSC’s Brian Lauritzen. Batjer reveals tantalizing details behind the selection of each work and Jonathan Gold’s former life as a cellist and music critic.
Tickets are still available to the second installment of LACO’s delectable chamber music series.
