- Gernot Wolfgang Continuum IV – Cascades listen
- Bernstein Serenade for Violin, Strings, Harp and Percussion
- Schumann Symphony No. 2 in C major
Drop in on a lively discussion between Socrates and his followers on the nature of love. Comic, ethereal, purely scientific, rapturous and all-powerful, Bernstein captures every nuance of the debate described in Plato’s Symposium. A violin concerto in all but name, the Serenade is the perfect showcase for celebrated star Cho-Liang Lin. LACO’s own Susan Greenberg, known for her “panache and musical projection,” (LA Times) sets the tone with a sparkling exploration of the piccolo, flute and alto flute written for her by Hollywood-based Gernot Wolfgang. Our concert concludes with the gorgeous Schumann symphony that has been called “a miracle of the human spirit.”
“His playing consistently engages the attention, because of his sweet, strong sound, his tremendous attention to artistic detail and his total mastery of the concerto.”
