vienna concert and trip to museum of applied arts

KUSC’s Gail Eichenthal, traveling with the Orchestra in Europe, describes the evening of concert in Vienna: “The LA Chamber Orchestra waltzed away with the audience tonight! Led by music director, Jeffrey Kahane, LACO sounded perfectly at home in the “Great Hall” of the nearly 100-old Konzerthaus, a five-minute walk from our hotel. In the Stravinsky Pulcinella Suite, solo violinist (and concertmaster) Margaret Batjer and the solo winds and brass were particularly thrilling…

After this greatly successful and no doubt exhausting program, Kahane, his wife Martha, some LACO patrons traveling with the orchestra, and orchestra officials Andrea Laguni, Ruth Eliel and Danielle Harrell (who took the photos on this blog) strolled for ten minutes or so to the massive and endlessly alluring MAK Center of Applied Arts. You may know the relatively intimate, though fascinating LA offshoot at the Schindler House in West Hollywood.” Read more on Gail’s Postcards from
