Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra: making great music personal



haydn: cello concerto

  • Britten Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge listen
  • Haydn Cello Concerto No. 1 in C major listen
  • Mozart Serenata notturna
  • Bruce Adolphe Do You Dream in Color? (US premiere)


Have you ever recovered something precious after you had given up hope of finding it again?

Believed lost forever, the score of Haydn’s youthful Cello Concerto in C major was unearthed in the Prague National Museum in 1961. Rediscover this treasure for yourself when French cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras performs it in his LACO debut. Also collaborating with the Orchestra for the first time, mezzo-soprano Laurie Rubin reveals her unique perspective as a multi-talented, blind artist, singing Bruce Adolphe’s Do You Dream In Color? inspired by her memoir of the same name. Find inspiration again in the works of Britten, Haydn, Mozart and Bruce Adolphe.

An “appealingly direct soloist” (The Guardian) Jean-Guihen Queyras performs with an “incredibly elegant and bewitching tone” (Le Figaro)

“A rich, but mellow mezzo-soprano” Laurie Rubin possesses “a very special voice.” (The Greenwich Times)
