- Mendelssohn Concerto in D minor for Violin and Piano listen
- Derek Bermel Mar de Setembro (“September Sea”) Sound Investment commission (world premiere)
- Mozart Symphony No. 38 in D major, K. 504, “Prague” listen
On January 19, 1787, the sweeping panoramic views and eclectic architecture of Prague set the backdrop for the highly-anticipated premiere of Mozart’s 38th Symphony. Now, pairing Mozart’s most dramatic Symphony with another world premiere, LACO recreates that excitement for the 10th anniversary of the Orchestra’s Sound Investment commissioning program. Derek Bermel’s features the soulful vocals of Brazilian-born Luciana Souza’s in his genre-bending new work. Jeffrey Kahane and concertmaster Margaret Batjer start off the evening with Mendelssohn’s joyful Double Concerto, demonstrating the camaraderie intrinsic to the LACO experience.
Grammy®-winner Luciana Souza “continues her captivating journey as a uniquely talented vocalist who organically crosses genre borders. Her music soulfully reflects, wistfully regrets, romantically woos, joyfully celebrates…” (Billboard Magazine)
Margaret Batjer displays “artistic polish…her intonation is very nearly flawless.” (Seattle Times)
LACO composer-in-residence Derek Bermel is a “brilliant musical vagabond [who] has made the sounds of the world his palette to create a singular artistic vision.” (Sequenza 21)
