Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra: making great music personal


  • Timothy Andres Old Keys (commissioned by LACO’s Sound Investment– world premiere)
  • Mozart/Andres Mozart “Coronation” Concerto re-composition (for piano and orchestra) (West Coast premiere)
  • Mozart Symphony No. 40 in G minor, KV. 550 listen

In 1913 Paris, the premiere of Stravinsky’s seminal The Rite of Spring caused an audience riot. The following year, after the work’s first concert-only performance, cheering Parisians carried Stravinsky through the streets. How will Los Angeles react to the Sound Investment commission by young Brooklyn-based composer Timothy Andres in March 2012? Come and find out!

“Andres is unquestionably a distinctive talent, with a fine teasing ear for texture and harmony,” declares The Guardian. An accomplished pianist, Andres also joins LACO for “a new completion of the “Coronation” Concerto, in which he has replaced entirely Mozart’s sketches for the left-hand part. “I approached the piece…as a sprawling playground for pianistic invention and virtuosity, taking cues from the composer-pianist tradition Mozart helped crystallize.”

Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 brings this scintillating concert to a close–a reminder that the ground-breaking works of today are the beloved masterpieces of tomorrow.

Timothy Andres’ works, “...were sensational; Andres had no trouble taking the audience along with him wherever he wanted to go–new music cannot be intimidating when played with this degree of skill and zest.” (The Boston Globe)

Andres’ compositions achieve “an unhurried grandeur that has rarely been felt in American music since John Adams came on the scene…” (Alex Ross, The New Yorker)
