Moss Theater, Santa Monica 

Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra presents the West Coast premiere of John Adams’ two-piano tour de force Roll Over Beethoven for its Westside Connections series on Thursday, May 4, 2017, 7:30 pm, at Santa Monica’s Moss Theater.  The program features Music Director Jeffrey Kahane, as beloved for his insightful introductions and versatility as for his artistry as a pianist and conductor, doing double-duty as piano soloist and commentator for the Beethoven-themed program.  Also showcased is Beethoven’s Piano Trio in B-flat major, “Archduke,” composed in 1811, which takes fragments of two late Beethoven piano works and processes them in his own transformative musical language that pays homage to the electric vitality of Beethoven’s musical forms.  Joining Kahane are LACO Concertmaster Margaret Batjer, who curates Westside Connections; special guest Joanne Pearce Martin, piano; and LACO Principal Cello Andrew Shulman.  NPR’s Renée Montagne interviews the special guests and moderates a short Q&A at the conclusion of each program.  The 2017 Westside Connections series, Music: The Mirror of Time, features explorations of musical masterworks that emerged from times of triumph and tragedy in England, Russia and Germany.
Each year, LACO’s trademark three-part Westside Connections, now in its ninth season, steps outside the proverbial “music “box” to illustrate the myriad ways music is woven into society and our lives with fascinating intellectual discourse, superb artistry and audience Q&As.  In previous seasons, Westside Connections has explored connections between music and such disparate topics as architecture, the culinary arts, poetry, the mind, stories and the influences of Los Angeles on creativity.

Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO), proclaimed “America’s finest chamber orchestra” by Public Radio International, has established itself among the world’s top musical ensembles.  Since 1997, LACO has performed under the baton of acclaimed conductor and pianist Jeffrey Kahane, hailed by critics as “visionary” and a conductor with “effortless musicality and extraordinary communicative gifts.”  Under Kahane’s leadership, the Orchestra maintains its status as a preeminent interpreter of historical masterworks and a champion of contemporary composers.

Steinway is the official piano of Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra.
Tickets (beginning at $56) are available online at laco.org, by calling LACO at 213 622 7001, or at the venue box office on the night of the concert, if tickets remain.  Student rush tickets ($12), based on availability, may be purchased at the box office one hour before the concert.  Also available for college students is the $30 “Campus to Concert Hall All Access Pass” – good for LACO’s three Westside Connections concerts at the Moss Theater, eight Orchestral Series concerts at either the Alex Theatre or UCLA’s Royce Hall and five Baroque Conversations concerts at downtown’s Zipper Hall.  The Moss Theater at New Roads School is located at 3131 Olympic Boulevard, Santa Monica, CA, 90404.

Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra’s (LACO) Baroque Conversations series concludes with Assistant Concertmaster Tereza Stanislav leading a program of Bach, Marais and Biber and featuring LACO Music Director Jeffrey Kahane on harpsichord on Thursday, April 13, 2017, 7:30 pm, at Zipper Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles.  The works include Bach’s Violin Sonata No. 3 in E major, and Marais’ Sonnerie de Ste. Geneviève du Mont-de-Paris.  Also featured are three of Biber’s Rosary Sonatas, each representing one of the Mysteries of the Catholic Rosary – The Visitation, No. 2; The Crucifixion, No. 10; and Passacaglia, No. 16.  She is joined by Kahane and LACO artists Andrew Shulman, cello, and Patricia Mabee, harpsichord.  Stanislav also moderates a post-concert Q&A.

Stanislav, applauded for her “sure technique and musical intelligence” (Calgary Herald) and “brilliant phrasing, uncannily pointed rhythm and pure intonation” (Huffington Post), has appeared at the Library of Congress, Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall and Wigmore Hall with such artists as Jean-Yves Thibaudet, the Miró Quartet and Jon Kimura Parker.  She has premiered Gunther Schuller’s Horn Quintet and Louis Andriessen’s The City of Dis and is featured on a soon-to-be released a CD in collaboration with pianist Hung-Kuan Chen.

The enlightening five-concert Baroque Conversations series provides insight into the genesis of orchestral repertoire from early Baroque schools through the pre-classical period.  Baroque Conversations is generously sponsored by Carol & Warner Henry, a Friend of LACO and the Ronus Foundation.

Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO), proclaimed “America’s finest chamber orchestra” by Public Radio International, has established itself among the world’s top musical ensembles.  Since 1997, LACO has performed under the baton of acclaimed conductor and pianist Jeffrey Kahane, hailed by critics as “visionary” and a conductor with “effortless musicality and extraordinary communicative gifts.”  Under Kahane’s leadership, the Orchestra maintains its status as a preeminent interpreter of historical masterworks and a champion of contemporary composers.

Evening Spotlights Music of Shostakovich, Includes Q&A Moderated by NPR’s Renée Montagne and Features LACO Artists Margaret Batjer, Tereza Stanislav, Sarah Thornblade, Victoria Miskolczy, Andrew Shulman and Armen Ksajikian


Thursday, April 6, 2017, 7:30 pm
Moss Theater, Santa Monica 

A Russia-focused, all-Shostakovich program led by pianist/conductor Ignat Solzhenitsyn, son of the famous Russian novelist and dissident, is featured at Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra’s second of three 2017 Westside Connections concerts on Thursday, April 6, 2017, 7:30 pm, at Santa Monica’s Moss Theater.  Spotlighting Music: The Mirror of Time, the Westside Connections series, curated by Concertmaster Margaret Batjer, spotlights special guests, who lead explorations of musical masterworks that emerged from times of triumph and tragedy in England, Russia and Germany.  The works on this program include Shostakovich’s popular String Quartet No. 8 in C minor, written in 1960 in just three days, and Piano Trio No. 2 in E minor, composed in 1944 and considered a lamentation for victims of the Holocaust.  Solzhenitsyn, described as “an uncommonly thoughtful, communicative musician” (The New York Times), is principal guest conductor of the Moscow Symphony Orchestra and conductor emeritus of the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia.  Joining him are Batjer and other LACO artists Tereza Stanislav, violin; Sarah Thornblade, violin; Victoria Miskolczy, viola; Andrew Shulman, cello; and Armen Ksajikian, cello.  NPR’s Renée Montagne interviews the special guests and moderates a short Q&A at the conclusion of each program.
Solzhenitsyn is also conductor emeritus of the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia and is on the piano faculty at the Curtis Institute of Music.  He has appeared with the orchestras of Baltimore, Cincinnati, Dallas, Elgin, Fort Worth, Herford, Toronto, Ljubljana, Moscow, Nashville, North Carolina, Phoenix, Prague, Salt Lake City, St. Petersburg, Toledo and Yekaterinburg, among others.  Winner of the Avery Fisher Career Grant, Solzhenitsyn has also given piano recitals in London, Milan, Zurich, Moscow, Tokyo and Sydney and performs with the orchestras of Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Los Angeles, Baltimore, Montreal, Toronto, London, Paris, Israel and Sydney.  He has been featured on numerous radio and television specials, including CBS Sunday Morning and ABC’s Nightline.  Born in Moscow, Solzhenitsyn currently resides in New York City.

Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, led by music director Jeffrey Kahane, presents world premiere of Shiver and Bloom by Julia Adolphe

read more →

Concerts also Feature Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 2 Performed by
Jon Kimura Parker, and Selection of Mahler, Mozart and Handel Leider and Arias
Performed By Mezzo-Soprano Sasha Cooke


Saturday, March 18, 2017, 8 pm, Alex Theatre, Glendale;
Sunday, March 19, 2017, 7 pm, UCLA’s Royce Hall

Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra Music Director Jeffrey Kahane conducts some of his top musical picks in this deeply personal orchestral program that includes the world premiere of Shiver and Bloom by rising composer Julia Adolphe on Saturday, March 18, 8 pm, at Glendale’s Alex Theatre, and Sunday, March 19, 2017, 7 pm, at Royce Hall.  The work by Adolphe, whose style is “a neat fusion of shimmering textures and cataclysmic climaxes” (Financial Times), is part of LACO’s singular and highly successful “Sound Investment” commissioning program, initiated during Kahane’s tenure 16 years ago to engage LACO audiences in developing new works.  Kahane also conducts Brahms’s Piano Concerto No. 2, written for extended chamber orchestra and featuring acclaimed pianist Jon Kimura Parker, “known for his liquid tone” and “dazzling showmanship” (Winnipeg Free Press).  World-renowned mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke, a “luminous standout” (New York Times), also returns to LACO to perform selections from Mahler’s tender and intimate Rückert Lieder, as well as the arias “Deh, per questo istante solo” from Mozart’s opera Le clemenza di Tito, and “As with rosy steps the morn” from Handel’s oratorio Theodora.

Adolphe, a “remarkably assured” composer of works “alive with invention,” (The New Yorker), is also an active writer, producer, teacher and band-leader.  Her works have received performances across the U.S. and abroad by the New York Philharmonic, Inscape Chamber Orchestra, Grammy-nominated pianist Aron Kallay and the Great Noise Ensemble, among many others.  Her awards include a 2016 Lincoln Center Emerging Artists Award, a 2015 Charles Ives Scholarship from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, as well as grants from New Music USA and American Composers Forum.  Adolphe, a native New Yorker, is currently pursuing a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the USC Thornton School of Music.

Adolphe says of her new work, “Shiver and Bloom evokes the perceived divide between the mind and the body.  A high, floating, ethereal soundscape captures the wandering thoughts of the mind while a low, grounded, striving motif suggests the physical world of the body.  These two contrasting realms swerve together and apart, creating the images of the work’s title.  The blooming of the low strings, bassoon, and horn yearns for unity with the icier, shivering, detached gestures of the high strings, flute, and clarinet.  Over the work’s twelve minutes, the worlds intersect and transform one another, melding into a more holistic entity.”

Grammy Award-winning mezzo-soprano Cooke is sought after by the world’s leading orchestras, opera companies and chamber music ensembles for her versatile repertoire and commitment to new music.  A frequent performer of contemporary works, Cooke recently performed seven world premieres in venues across the globe, and released an album, Liszt Vol. 4 on Hyperion alongside Julius Drake.  Past recordings include music by William Bolcom, Mohammed Fairouz, John Harbison, Xavier Montsalvatge and John Musto, as well as her solo album If you love for beauty with the Colburn Orchestra.  She is a graduate of Rice University and The Juilliard School.

Parker, known for his passionate artistry and engaging stage presence, has had a versatile career that has taken him from Carnegie Hall and Berlin’s Philharmonie to the Beijing Concert Hall and the Sydney Opera House.  Recent engagements include solo appearances with the New York Philharmonic; Philadelphia, Minnesota and IRIS orchestras; and Chicago and Milwaukee symphonies. He toured Off the Score with iconic Police drummer Stewart Copeland in spring 2016, and throughout the season gave 20 concerts with the newly formed Montrose Trio, featuring violinist Martin Beaver and cellist Clive Greensmith.  A committed educator, Parker is professor of piano at The Shepherd School of Music at Rice University.  He is also artistic advisor of the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival.

Kahane, equally at home at the keyboard or on the podium, has established an international reputation as a truly versatile artist, recognized around the world for his mastery of diverse repertoire ranging from Bach, Mozart and Beethoven to Gershwin, Golijov and John Adams.  Now in his 20th season as LACO music director, he previously served as music director of the Colorado and Santa Rosa symphonies.  He has garnered tremendous critical acclaim for his innovative programming and commitment to education and community involvement and received multiple ASCAP Awards for Adventurous Programming for his work in both Los Angeles and Denver.  He is a Professor of Keyboard Studies at the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music.

Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra celebrates composer John Adams’ 70th birthday with program featuring The Wound-Dresser, led by guest conductor Carlos Kalmar with baritone Brian Mulligan

Other Works Include
Haydn’s Symphony No. 98,
Rossini’s The Italian Girl in Algiers Overture and
Lutosławski’s Musique funèbre

Saturday, February 25, 2017, 8 pm, Alex Theatre, Glendale;
Sunday, February 26, 2017, 7 pm, UCLA’s Royce Hall

Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO) takes part in the world-wide celebration honoring Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Adams on the occasion of his 70th birthday when guest conductor Carlos Kalmar leads a performance of Adams’ The Wound-Dresser on Saturday, February 25, 8 pm, at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, and Sunday, February 26, 2017, 7 pm, at UCLA’s Royce Hall. The moving work, a tribute to the tolls of war based on war poems penned by Walt Whitman during the Civil War, features Brian Mulligan, applauded for his “commanding and clear-voiced” baritone (San Francisco Examiner). Kalmar, Music Director of the Oregon Symphony, Chief Conductor/Artistic Director of the Spanish Radio/Television Orchestra and Choir in Madrid, and Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of the Grant Park Music Festival in Chicago, also conducts Lutosławski’s Musique funèbre, Haydn’s Symphony No. 98, and Rossini’s The Italian Girl in Algiers Overture.

Adams, a creative thinker and one of America’s most admired composers, occupies a unique position in the world of classical music. His works, both operatic and symphonic, stand out among contemporary classical compositions for their depth of expression, brilliance of sound and the profoundly humanist nature of their themes. Over the past 25 years, his music has played a decisive role in turning the tide of contemporary musical aesthetics away from academic modernism and toward a more expansive, expressive language, entirely characteristic of his New World surroundings. Hallelujah Junction, John Adams’ autobiography, was named by the New York Times as one of the “most notable books of 2008.” The John Adams Reader: Essential Writings on an American Composer is a 400-page summary of writings about Adams and his music, and the first in-depth anthology of texts dealing with more than 30 years of the composer’s creative life. Adams has received countless awards and honorary degrees, including the National Endowment for the Arts Opera Honors Award and an induction into the American Classical Music Hall of Fame.

Kalmar previously served as music director for the Hamburg Symphony, the Stuttgart Philharmonic, Vienna’s Tonnkunsterorchester and the Anhaltisches Theater in Dessau, Germany. In 2011, he made his New York debut at Carnegie Hall, earning praise from critics in The New York Times, The New Yorker and Musical America. A recording of the concert was nominated for a Grammy. Recently, Kalmar has appeared with the Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Cincinnati, Dallas, Houston, Vancouver, Lahti, Minnesota and City of Birmingham symphony orchestras; the Berlin, Frankfurt and Vienna radio symphony orchestras; the National Arts Centre; the Rotterdam and Helsinki philharmonic orchestras; the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg; and the Czech Philharmonic. His Grammy-nominated album Music for a Time of War with the Oregon Symphony was followed by This England, a recording of Vaughan Williams’ Fifth Symphony, Elgar’s Cockaigne Overture and Britten’s Four Sea Interludes. Kalmar was born in Uruguay to Austrian parents but moved back to Austria at the age of 15 to study conducting with Karl Osterreicher at the Vienna Academy of Music.

Mulligan, hailed by The New York Times for “a voice that is rich, secure, and really, really big” and by Opera News for having “a wonderful, rich voice and a fine stage presence,” frequently appears with the world’s leading orchestras and opera companies. In the 2016-17 season, he makes his debut at the Vienna Staatsoper as Captain Balstrode in Peter Grimes, with returns to Opernhaus Zürich for a signature role of Valentin in Faust and Oper Frankfurt for his role debut of Golaud in Pelléas and Mélisande. On the symphonic front, Mulligan returns to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra for Vaughan Williams’ A Sea Symphony, conducted by Robert Spano.

Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO), proclaimed “America’s finest chamber orchestra” by Public Radio International, has established itself among the world’s top musical ensembles. Since 1997, LACO has performed under the baton of acclaimed conductor and pianist Jeffrey Kahane, hailed by critics as “visionary” and a conductor with “effortless musicality and extraordinary communicative gifts.” Under Kahane’s leadership, the Orchestra maintains its status as a preeminent interpreter of historical masterworks and a champion of contemporary composers.

Horsch, the first recorder player ever signed to the prestigious Decca Classics label, is featured on Vivaldi’s Concerto in C major for Recorder and Strings and Concerto in G minor for Recorder and Strings, “La Notte” as well as Sammartini’s Concerto in F major for Recorder and Strings. Stubbs also conducts Purcell’s Suite from The Fairy Queen and Vivaldi’s Concerto in C major for Strings. Former LACO Principal Oboe Allan Vogel serves as guest host, offering commentary to open the program and moderating the post-concert Q&A.

Stubbs, hailed for his “warm, well-paced” conducting (The Seattle Times), is one of the world’s most respected lutenists, conductors and baroque opera specialists. After enjoying a 30-year career in Europe, he returned to his native Seattle in 2006, where he established Pacific MusicWorks, a production company that reflects his lifelong interest in both early music and contemporary performance. Stubbs is also the Boston Early Music Festival’s (BEMF) permanent artistic co-director along with his long-time colleague Paul O’Dette, with whom he serves as co-musical director of all BEMF operas and recordings, which have garnered three Grammy Award nominations, and earned a Grammy for Best Opera Recording 2015. His extensive discography as conductor and solo lutenist includes more than 100 recordings. In 2013, Stubbs was appointed Senior Artist in Residence at the University of Washington School of Music.

Horsch, winner of the 2016 Concertgebouw Young Talent Award, has been described as “the latest big thing in recorder playing” (The Guardian). She is considered one of the most remarkable musical talents of her generation and already in great demand internationally as a solo recorder player. She has performed at the Early Music Festival in Innsbruck, Austria; the Next Generation Festival in Bad Ragaz, Switzerland; the Grachtenfestival Amsterdam; the International Chambermusic Festival Utrecht; the International Organ Festival Haarlem; and the Flanders Festival in Ghent, among others. Horsch was also chosen to perform in the televised farewell concert for the former Queen Beatrix, appearing as a soloist with the Netherlands Wind Ensemble. An ambassador for the recorder, she is eager to break down preconceptions about the instrument, experimenting with contemporary repertoire, jazz and pop music. She plays on recorders built by Fred Morgan, Doris Kulossa, Stephan Blezinger and Seiji Shirao, which she acquired with the generous support of the Prins Bernhard Foundation. She also uses a specially designed tenor flute from Tokyo. From a musical family, her parents are both cellists and her father is principal cellist of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.

The enlightening five-concert Baroque Conversations series provides insight into the genesis of orchestral repertoire from early Baroque schools through the pre-classical period. Baroque Conversations is generously sponsored by Carol & Warner Henry, a Friend of LACO and the Ronus Foundation.

Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO), proclaimed “America’s finest chamber orchestra” by Public Radio International, has established itself among the world’s top musical ensembles. Since 1997, LACO has performed under the baton of acclaimed conductor and pianist Jeffrey Kahane, hailed by critics as “visionary” and a conductor with “effortless musicality and extraordinary communicative gifts.” Under Kahane’s leadership, the Orchestra maintains its status as a preeminent interpreter of historical masterworks and a champion of contemporary composers.

Tickets, starting at $58, are available online at laco.org, or by calling LACO at 213 622 7001. Single tickets can also be purchased at the venue box office on the night of the concert, if tickets remain. Discounted tickets are available by phone for groups of 12 or more.

Violin and Viola d’amore virtuoso Rachel Barton Pine performs leading works by Vivaldi, Pisendel and Locatelli on Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra’s Baroque Conversations Program

read more →


Thursday, February 9, 2017, 7:30 pm
Zipper Hall, downtown Los Angeles

Rachel Barton Pine, a consummate violinist and master of the viola d’amore, leads Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO) Baroque Conversations on Thursday, February 9, 2017, 7:30 pm, at Zipper Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles.  The program includes Vivaldi’s Concerto in D major for Viola d’amore and Orchestra and Concerto in D minor for Viola d’amore and Orchestra, two of his eight concertos for viola d’amore.  Also featured are Pisendel’s Imitation des Caractères de la Danse and Locatelli’s Concerto No. 12 in D major, from L’Arte del Violino, “The Harmonic Labyrinth.”

Pine, hailed by the Washington Post as “an exciting, boundary-defying performer who displays a power and confidence that puts her in the top echelon,” is celebrated as a leading interpreter of great classical and contemporary works.  She is an avid performer of Baroque, Renaissance and medieval music on Baroque violin, viola d’amore, Renaissance violin and rebec.

The Chicago Tribune praised her “deft, stylish playing,” adding “In everything, the spirit and sensitivity of Pine’s playing were informed by her mastery of the instrument’s intricate technical demands.” Hailed by the Washington Post as “an exciting, boundary-defying performer who displays a power and confidence that puts her in the top echelon,” Pine is celebrated as a leading interpreter of great classical and contemporary works.   Her prolific discography of 30 albums reflects her passion for the classical warhorses, as well as her interest in promoting contemporary composers and exploring historic music that has been neglected.

Pine will perform on her original-condition, 1774 Nicola Gagliano 12-string viola d’amore.  The top of the instrument was made from the very same tree as the top of her original-condition 1770 Nicola Gagliano violin.  Viola d’amore is an instrument of the violin family with 14 strings: seven played with the bow, and the others resonating passively for a silvery tone.

According to Pine, she is dedicating her performance to the memory of legendary conductor Sir Neville Marriner, the first music director of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra.  In August 2016, Pine spent time with Marriner to discuss their scheduled January 2017 recording of the Elgar and Bruch violin concertos with the BBC Symphony.  The album will now be released as a tribute to late conductor in January 2018 on Avie with Andrew Litton conducting.  Pine and Marriner previously collaborated on Mozart: Complete Violin Concertos with The Academy of St Martin in the Fields, which charted at number three on the Billboard classical charts in 2015.

Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO), one of the nation’s premier orchestras as well as a leader in presenting wide-ranging repertoire and adventurous commissions, announces programming for its milestone 50th Anniversary season in 2017-18, which spotlights its virtuosic artists and builds upon the Orchestra’s five decades of intimate and transformative musical programs. Heralding the landmark occasion as an extended opportunity to broaden the Orchestra’s collaborations and inventive programming, LACO names Composer-in-Residence Andrew Norman its first Creative Advisor and extends his contract through the 2018-19 season. Returning to LACO’s stage are violinists Joshua Bell and Jennifer Koh, appointed LACO’s Guest Artist-in-Residence for the fall, and guest conductors Douglas Boyd, Karina Canellakis, Thomas Dausgaard and Peter Oundjian. Jeffrey Kahane, who steps down as Music Director in June 2017 after a 20-year tenure, makes his first appearance in his new role as LACO Conductor Laureate. The season features the world premiere of Norman’s Violin Concerto, written for and featuring Koh, among other highlights.

”As a gifted composer with a flourishing career and an imaginative voice, Andrew Norman has had a tremendous impact on the classical music field and on LACO, in particular,” says LACO Executive Director Scott Harrison. “We are pleased to significantly expand our relationship and welcome his innovative perspectives in his new capacity as Creative Advisor. As LACO celebrates 50 years of intimate and transformative music-making, Andrew will be joined by a distinctive group of new and returning guest conductors, soloists and composers who will push the orchestra to greater artistic heights while helping us connect more deeply with the many audiences we serve across the county.”

Norman was named LACO’s Composer-in-Residence five years ago. Recently recognized with the prestigious 2017 Grawemeyer Award in Music Composition, he was also named Musical America 2016 Composer of the Year.

“I am thrilled to be serving the LACO family in my expanded role,” says Norman. “As we work together to explore opportunities to engage with our community and serve new audiences, I can’t wait to see where we can go.”

LACO’s Orchestral Series includes eight programs, featuring four LACO-co-commissions, among them Norman’s world premiere, another world premiere by LACO Sound Investment composer Ellen Reid and the West Coast premiere of Pierre Jalbert’s Violin Concerto, with Concertmaster Margaret Batjer. A range of works from LACO’s signature repertoire includes Vivaldi’s Concerto Grosso in D Minor, the first work ever performed by LACO 50 years ago. LACO also presents Beethoven Symphony No. 2 in D Major, “Mozart in Focus,” featuring Mozart’s final three symphonies, and continues a multi-year exploration of Haydn’s 12 London Symphonies, considered a cornerstone of the chamber music repertoire. Underscoring the virtuosity of the Orchestra itself, a conductor-less program caps the season.

The Orchestra presents a number of other eminent guest artists and conductors on its Orchestral Series, including LACO debuts of Spanish conductor Jaime Martín, pianist Menahem Pressler who last year at the age of 92 dazzled audiences with the Berlin Philharmonic, French pianist David Fray, English tenor Toby Spence and teenage cello virtuoso Sheku Kanneh-Mason, who has also been named LACO’s Guest Artist-in-Residence for the spring and is making his US orchestral debut. The residencies of Kanneh-Mason and Koh include masterclasses, community engagement opportunities and free public performances, along with their concert appearances, providing more accessible musical opportunities to the broader Los Angeles community.

Additionally, LACO expands its relationship with Baroque Artistic Partner Mahan Esfahani, a harpsichordist who appears on the Baroque Conversations series and makes his debut on LACO’s Orchestral Series in a program featuring all six Brandenburg Concertos led by Batjer. Other guest artists making guest appearances on the Baroque Conversations series are conductors Harry Bickett and Ricardo Minasi.

LACO also expands its “Music +” chamber music and discussion series (formerly “Westside Connections”) curated by Batjer at Santa Monica’s Moss Theatre. For the first time, concerts will be repeated at the Huntington Library in San Marino, a brand new venue for the Orchestra. This season, the “Music +” series explores the relationship between music and dance.

In addition to presenting its “Music +” series at the Moss Theatre and Huntington Library, LACO performs across the Southland as Orchestra-in-Residence at Glendale’s Alex Theatre and Orchestra-in-Residence at Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA (CAP UCLA). Zipper Concert Hall at The Colburn School is the home of LACO’s Baroque Conversations series.

LACO continues as a partner in the “LACO-USC Thornton Strings Mentorship Program,” in which selected Thornton students participate in a mock audition with the possibility of winning a guest musician slot in a strings section for a LACO concert. The program is designed to enhance preparedness of strings students for a professional career. LACO musicians also perform side-by-side with Inner City Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles (ICYOLA), deepening the Orchestra’s commitment with that training organization, which seeks to introduce inner-city youth to the life-affirming power of music.

Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, proclaimed “America’s finest chamber orchestra” by Public Radio International, has established itself among the world’s top musical ensembles. Over the past five decades, the Orchestra, noted as a preeminent interpreter of historical masterworks and a champion of contemporary composers, has made 31 recordings, toured Europe, South America, Japan and North America, earning adulation from audiences and critics alike, and garnered eight ASCAP Awards for Adventurous Programming. With the establishment of LACO in 1968 as an artistic outlet for the recording industry’s most gifted musicians, Los Angeles’ music and culture scene took a major step forward. Since then, the Orchestra’s five illustrious music directors – Sir Neville Marriner, Gerard Schwarz, Iona Brown, Christof Perick and Jeffrey Kahane – have set a standard of musical excellence for the orchestra that continues today. LACO’s artistic founder, cellist James Arkatov, envisioned an ensemble that would allow the Orchestra’s conservatory-trained players to balance studio work and teaching with pure artistic collaboration at the highest level. Financial backing for the Orchestra came from philanthropist Richard Colburn and managerial expertise from attorney Joseph Troy, who also became LACO’s first president.

2017-18 SEASON DETAILED

ORCHESTRAL SERIES

LACO’s core “Orchestral Series” features eight programs, each with back-to-back performances at the Alex Theatre in Glendale and UCLA’s Royce Hall. The series showcases LACO’s remarkable artistry and trademark mix of orchestral masterpieces and new works from today’s leading composers, as well as the much-admired collaborative style between LACO artists. Passionate, joyous and engaging, the series features a range of exceptional guest artists and conductors.

• Joshua Bell Plays Bernstein. LACO’s 2017-18 season-opening program launches the Orchestra’s 50th Anniversary season and helps kick off Leonard Bernstein’s centennial with acclaimed violinist Joshua Bell performing Bernstein’s lyrical Serenade (after Plato’s Symposium) for violin and orchestra inspired by Plato’s text on love, led by guest conductor Jaime Martín in his LACO debut. Martín also conducts Brahms’ Serenade No. 1 in D Major, noted for its prominent horn section and remarkable symphonic quality, and Mozart’s Overture to the opera, The Abduction from the Seraglio. Bell, one of the most celebrated violinists of his era and recipient of the Avery Fisher Prize, has recorded more than 40 CDs, garnering Grammy, Mercury, Gramophone and Echo Klassik awards. Named music director of the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields in 2011, he is the only person to hold the post since Sir Neville Marriner formed the orchestra in 1958. Bell last appeared with LACO in 2000. Martín, a prominent flautist turned conductor, is Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of Gävle Symphony Orchestra, Chief Conductor of the Orquestra de Cadaqués and Artistic Director of the Santander International Festival. (Saturday, September 30, 8 pm, Alex Theatre, Glendale; Sunday, October 1, 2017, 7 pm, UCLA’s Royce Hall)

• Mozart in Focus: Symphony No. 40. Guest Conductor Peter Oundjian, in his second LACO appearance, leads the world premiere of Composer-in-Residence Andrew Norman’s Violin Concerto, a LACO commission written for and featuring Jennifer Koh, recognized for her commanding performances and technical virtuosity. The program opens with the Suite from Stravinsky’s ballet Pulcinella, highlighting LACO Principal Trumpet David Washburn, and includes Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 in G Minor, one of the three final Mozart symphonies LACO is performing this season as part of “Mozart in Focus.” Oundjian the “consistently illuminating” (Gramophone) music director of both the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and the Royal National Orchestra in Scotland, made his LACO debut in 2015. Norman’s work, he says, “is inspired directly by Jenny Koh and the relationship I have with her as a friend and collaborator.” Koh is LACO’s Guest Artist-in-Residence for the fall, participating in masterclasses, community engagement and free public performances, along with her concert appearances. Named Musical America’s 2016 Instrumentalist of the Year and winner of the 1994 International Tchaikovsky Competition, Koh has premiered more than 60 works written for her and is “one of our most thoughtful and intense musicians” (The New York Times). (Saturday, October 14, 8 pm, Alex Theatre, Glendale; Sunday, October 15, 2017, 7 pm, UCLA’s Royce Hall)

• Bach’s Brandenburgs! Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra performs the complete cycle of Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos led from the first chair by esteemed LACO Concertmaster Margaret Batjer and featuring special guest Mahan Esfahani on harpsichord in his Orchestral Series debut. The Brandenburg Concertos remain evergreen and present an opportunity to showcase the immense talents of many of LACO’s virtuoso principals, notably newly appointed principal flute Joachim Becerra Thomsen and newly appointed principal oboe Claire Brazeau. This LACO-signature repertoire has previously been performed by the Orchestra an astonishing 52 times, more often than any other work in its repertoire. (Saturday, December 9, 8 pm, Alex Theatre, Glendale; Sunday, December 10, 2017, 7 pm, UCLA’s Royce Hall)

• Midweek Mozart (Mozart in Focus: Symphony No. 41). LACO’s 50th Anniversary season 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 Brahms’ Selected Dances and 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. This is his LACO solo debut. (Tuesday, January 30, 8 pm, Alex Theatre, Glendale; Wednesday, January 31, 2018, 7 pm, UCLA’s Royce Hall)

• Regal Classics. Highlighting works from across the pond, LACO presents a London-themed program with “superb,” and much sought-after Scottish conductor Douglas Boyd leading British tenor Toby Spence in Britten’s exquisite Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings, a song cycle set to poems on the subject of night. The evenings include a world premiere by LACO Sound Investment composer Ellen Reid, hailed for “radiant” work (The New Yorker) that “brims with canny invention” (LA Weekly). As LACO continues its multi-year exploration of Haydn’s 12 London Symphonies, the program also features his last one, Symphony No. 104, “London.” Composed between 1791 and 1795, these works are among the cornerstones of the chamber music repertoire. Boyd, acclaimed for his vibrant conducting style, was a founding member and principal oboe of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe for 21 years before turning to conducting in 2002. He served as Artistic Partner of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and made his LACO conducting debut in 2014. Spence, one of the finest lyric tenors of his generation and recipient of the 2011 Royal Philharmonic Society’s “Singer of the Year” award, has performed with the Metropolitan Opera, Royal Opera House, the English National Opera and the Paris Opera, among others, and appeared with the Berlin, Vienna, Rotterdam and Los Angeles Philharmonics and well as the Cleveland Orchestra. LACO commissioned Reid as part of its singular and highly successful “Sound Investment” commissioning program that engages LACO audiences in developing new works. It gives members the rare opportunity to create a legacy in music and observe first-hand the development of a new work from the composer’s earliest ideas to the finished composition. Participants invest $300 or more for a membership, which includes intimate salons throughout the season featuring in-depth discussion with the composer about the creative process and previews of the final work. (Saturday, February 24, 8 pm, Alex Theatre, Glendale; Sunday, February 25, 2018, 7 pm, UCLA’s Royce Hall)

• Kahane Returns! Jeffrey Kahane, who steps down as LACO Music Director in June 2017 after a 20-year tenure, makes his first appearance in his new role as the Orchestra’s Conductor Laureate with the West Coast premiere of Pierre Jalbert’s Violin Concerto, featuring LACO Concertmaster Margaret Batjer. A co-commission by LACO, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and Minnesota Orchestra, Jalbert’s work was written specifically for the three orchestras’ concertmasters. Kahane also conducts Respighi’s Three Botticelli Pictures, a vivid aural impression of three of the Renaissance master’s famous paintings, and continues LACOs multi-year exploration of Haydn’s famed 12 London symphonies with Symphony No. 99 in E-Flat Major, the seventh in the sequence. (Saturday, March 17, 8 pm, Alex Theatre, Glendale; Sunday, March 18, 2018, 7 pm, UCLA’s Royce Hall)

• Beethoven! Guest conductor Karina Canellakis, winner of the 2016 Sir Georg Solti Conducting Award, makes her third LACO appearance since 2015 in a program featuring Dai Fujikura’s Secret Forest, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2 in D Major, and Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 24 in C Minor performed by David Fray, a “gifted pianist” (Chicago Tribune). Fujikura’s work has been described as “a riot of imaginative bird and insect noise – a private utopia well worth exploring” (The Guardian). Canellakis received glowing critical praise for her performances since first making headlines in 2014 filling in last-minute for Jaap van Zweden with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra in Shostakovich’s 8th symphony. She made her European conducting debut last June with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe at the Styriarte Festival in Graz, Austria, replacing the late Nikolaus Harnoncourt, and served for two seasons through 2015-16 as Assistant Conductor of the Dallas Symphony, during which time she conducted over 60 performances with the orchestra. Fray, heralded for his “exquisite, imaginative, and virtuosic” performances (Epoch Times), was BBC Music Magazine’s 2008 “Newcomer of the Year” and is the subject of the documentary Swing, Sing and Think. (Saturday, April 21, 8 pm, Alex Theatre, Glendale; Sunday, April 22, 2018, 7 pm, UCLA’s Royce Hall)

• Season Finale! (Mozart in Focus: Symphony No. 39). LACO’s 50th Anniversary season concludes poignantly with a conductor-less program spotlighting the Orchestra itself that includes Vivaldi’s Concerto Grosso in D Minor, the first work ever performed by LACO 50 years ago. “LACO has a rich history of presenting conductor-less programs,” says Harrison, “which is a testament to the leadership displayed by our 40 virtuoso resident musicians and the depth of their artistic interaction.” The Orchestra also performs Derrick Spiva’s From Here A Path, the second part of a trilogy for chamber orchestra inspired by LACO, and Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No. 1 in E-Flat Major, featuring the US orchestral debut of teenage British cello virtuoso Sheku Kanneh-Mason, named BBC’s 2016 Young Musician of the Year. The first black musician to win the award since its inception, he has been compared to a young Jacqueline du Pre and recently signed a recording contract with Decca. The final work on the program is Mozart’s Symphony No. 39 in E-Flat Major, which also wraps “Mozart in Focus,” LACO’s exploration this season of the composer’s final three symphonies. (Saturday, May 19, 8 pm, Alex Theatre, Glendale; Sunday, May 20, 2018, 7 pm, UCLA’s Royce Hall)

BAROQUE CONVERSATIONS
Harpsichord virtuoso Mahan Esfahani continues as LACO’s Baroque Artistic Partner through the 2018-19 season. Artists curating and hosting performances for the enlightening five-concert Baroque Conversations series, held at The Colburn School’s Zipper Hall in downtown Los Angeles, are LACO Principal Cello Andrew Shulman (November 2, 2017); Principal Trumpet David Washburn, leading a brass and organ program (January 16, 2018); guest conductor Riccardo Minasi, who conducts the music of Pergolesi (March 1, 2018); Esfahani (March 22, 2018); and guest conductor Harry Bicket (April 26, 2018). The series spotlights repertoire from early Baroque schools through the pre-classical period. In signature LACO style, the artists share their insights into the music and invite questions from the audience to provide patrons with an in-depth look at the music being presented as well as an opportunity to get to know LACO artists on a deeper level. Each program begins with a wine and hors d’oeuvres reception. (Thursdays, November 2, 2017, and January 18, March 1 and 22, and April 26, 2018, 7:30 pm, Zipper Hall, downtown Los Angeles)

MUSIC + DANCE
LACO’s trademark “Music +” (formerly “Westside Connections”), curated by Concertmaster Margaret Batjer, is designed to illustrate the myriad ways music is woven into society and our lives. During the 2017-18 season, the three-concert chamber music and discussion series continues to step outside the proverbial “music box” by focusing this season on a thought-provoking exploration of the relationship between dance and music, featuring chamber works to complement presentations of special guests. For the first time, concerts will be repeated at LACO’s newest venue, the Huntington Library in San Marino, considerably expanding the Orchestra’s reach, in addition to taking place at the intimate state-of-the-art 335-seat Moss Theater at New Roads School in Santa Monica. In previous seasons, “Music +” has explored associations between music and such disparate topics as the mind, architecture, the culinary arts and poetry. (dates and programs to be announced, Huntington Library, San Marino, and Ann and Jerry Moss Theater at The Herb Alpert Educational Village at New Roads School, Santa Monica)

LACO À LA CARTE
Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra offers music lovers an opportunity to enjoy five intimate, elegant and entertaining “LACO à la carte” fundraising events, which illustrate that music truly knows no boundaries by pairing delectable international cuisine and exclusive salon musical performances by LACO musicians and guest artists in spectacular private residences of the consul general corps. “LACO à la carte” is chaired by LACO board member Mahnaz Newman. (dates, locations and programs to be announced)

LACO ANNUAL CONCERT GALA
LACO’s annual concert gala celebrates the Orchestra’s 50th Anniversary season with a special concert, silent and live auctions and a sumptuous dinner. (date, location to be announced)

LACO COMMUNITY PROGRAMS REACH THOUSANDS OF YOUNG PEOPLE
Nurturing future musicians and composers as well as inspiring a love of classical music are integral to LACO’s mission. Through its “Meet the Music,” “Community Partners,” “LACO-USC Thornton Strings Mentorship Program” and master classes and school visits with LACO Composer-in-Residence Andrew Norman and guest artists-in-residence Jennifer Koh, Mahan Esfahani and Sheku Kanneh-Mason, the Orchestra reaches thousands of young people annually. LACO musicians also perform side-by-side with Inner City Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles (ICYOLA), deepening the Orchestra’s commitment with that training organization, which seeks to introduce inner-city youth to the life-affirming power of music. Additionally, the season kicks off with a free concert at Grand Performances with LACO led by conductor Carlos Izcaray and featuring two soloists from Colburn School on Friday, September 22, 2017.

Event Is Part of LACO’s “Lift Every Voice,”
Three-Week, City-Wide Series of Concerts, Conversations and Community Engagement Exploring Themes of Tolerance, Compassion, Cooperation, Creativity and the Power of Music to Encourage Understanding and Promote Peace

Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, led by Music Director Jeffrey Kahane, presents the US premiere of Kurt Weill’s Song-Suite for Violin and Orchestra, arranged by Paul Bateman, and the West Coast Premiere of Bruce Adolphe’s Violin Concerto “I Will Not Remain Silent,” which is dedicated to Rabbi Joachim Prinz and his friendship with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., on Saturday, January 21, 8 pm, at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, and Sunday, January 22, 2017, 7 pm, at UCLA’s Royce Hall. Both works feature guest soloist Daniel Hope, “among the best (violinists) in the world” (The Observer, London), who is also known for his humanitarian efforts espousing tolerance. Additionally, Kahane conducts Weill’s compelling satirical sung ballet THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS, originally composed in 1933 with text by Bertolt Brecht, featuring virtuosic chanteuse Storm Large (Pink Martini) and New York’s all-male vocal group Hudson Shad.

German-born Weill, one of the most versatile and influential theater composers of the twentieth century, fled Nazi Germany for Paris in 1933 and came to the US in 1935. The Seven Deadly Sins, a searing critique of capitalism conceived in 1933, was his final collaboration with Brecht and capped his European career. His Song-Suite for Violin and Orchestra was arranged by Paul Bateman specifically for Hope.

This program is part of LACO’s LIFT EVERY VOICE, a three-week, city-wide series of free and ticketed concerts, conversations and community engagement celebrating the unique ability of music and the arts to address challenging social and moral issues, from January 14 to 29, 2017, at venues across the Southland. LIFT EVERY VOICE, conceived and curated by Kahane to explore themes of tolerance, compassion, cooperation and creativity along with the power of music to encourage understanding and promote peace, was inspired by the lives of human and civil rights champions Rabbi Joachim Prinz, composer Kurt Weill and Martin Luther King, Jr. The series is a signature part of Kahane’s 20th and final LACO season, which features programming that reflects his far-reaching impact, broad musical sensibilities, distinctive philosophical interests and tremendous artistic passion. Other highlights of LIFT EVERY VOICE include the first Los Angeles performance since the 1950s of Weill’s profound anti-apartheid musical Lost in the Stars, directed by Anne Bogart; a joint performance with the Inner City Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles (ICYOLA); and symposiums, a chamber music program and film screenings.

Prinz, who bridged the Holocaust and the civil rights movement and was one of King’s strongest allies, died in 1988, more than a quarter of a century before Adolphe composed his Violin Concerto “I Will Not Remain Silent” honoring him. Prinz’s son Jonathan says the piece reflects his father and his beliefs. “It’s described as the violin standing in for him and the orchestra standing for the people around him,” he explains. “He was a strong voice for many causes but always cognizant of the people he worked with or represented.” The work made its debut in 2015 by IRIS Orchestra.

Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO), proclaimed “America’s finest chamber orchestra” by Public Radio International, has established itself among the world’s top musical ensembles. Since 1997, LACO has performed under the baton of acclaimed conductor and pianist Jeffrey Kahane, hailed by critics as “visionary” and a conductor with “effortless musicality and extraordinary communicative gifts.” Under Kahane’s leadership, the Orchestra maintains its status as a preeminent interpreter of historical masterworks and a champion of contemporary composers.

Steinway is the official piano of Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra.

DANIEL HOPE has toured the world as a virtuoso soloist for 25 years and is celebrated for his musical versatility. Winner of the 2015 European Cultural Prize for Music, whose previous recipients include Daniel Barenboim, Plácido Domingo and the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, Hope appears as soloist with the world’s major orchestras and conductors, also directing many ensembles from the violin. An exclusive Deutsche Grammophon artist since 2007, he is Music Director of the Zurich Chamber Orchestra, succeeding Sir Roger Norrington. Hope has also commissioned over 30 works from such composers as Alfred Schnittke, Toru Takemitsu, Harrison Birtwistle, Sofia Gubaidulina, György Kurtág, Peter Maxwell Davies, Krzysztof Penderecki and Mark-Anthony Turnage. He has penned four bestselling books published in Germany; contributes regularly to the Wall Street Journal and has written scripts for collaborative performances with the actors Klaus Maria Brandauer and Mia Farrow.

Musician/actor/playwright/author STORM LARGE shot to national prominence in 2006 as a finalist on the CBS show Rock Star: Supernova. From there she went on to tour the world, singing in 17 different languages with the joyful pop orchestra Pink Martini. This led her to the stage of Carnegie Hall to sing Weill’s The Seven Deadly Sins with the Detroit Symphony, which launched her a new star in classical music world after The New York Times decreed her performance “sensational.” Large has also been featured in the one-woman show, Crazy Enough, which broke box office records. Her memoir of the same title was named Oprah’s Book of the Week in 2012. In 2014, she released Le Bonheur, a collection of tortured and titillating love songs. She starred at the Mark Taper Forum with Katey Sagal and Michael McKean in Jerry Zak’s production of Harps and Angels, a musical featuring the work of Randy Newman.

HUDSON SHAD has racked up more performances as “The Family” in The Seven Deadly Sins than any other group in history. They have performed the piece in more than 50 locations worldwide from Arezzo to Zagreb, numbering well over 100 performances. They have twice recorded the work, once with Kurt Masur and the New York Philharmonic and once with Marianne Faithfull, Dennis Russell Davies and the RSO-Wien. In 2008, Hudson Shad participated in the Carnegie Hall premiere of the work with Ute Lemper and the Toronto Symphony. Since its debut in 1992, the vocal group has performed more than 500 concerts in major venues across Europe, Asia, and the U.S.
