Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra: making great music personal



opening: ravel & beethoven

  • Ravel Piano Concerto in G major
  • Andrew Norman The Great Swiftness (West Coast premiere)
  • James Matheson True South (West Coast premiere)
  • Beethoven Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 61


Let Augustin Hadelich transport you to 1806 Theater an der Wien where Beethoven’s now-beloved Violin Concerto was first performed and hear the smoky jazz undertones in Jeffrey Kahane rendition of Ravel’s piano masterwork. Both composers were trailblazers, moving the concerto to new and unconventional heights. Preceding each concerto is a short introduction to an inspiring young American composer, Pulitzer Prize finalist Andrew Norman, now LACO composer-in-residence, and James Matheson, recipient of the prestigious 2011 Charles Ives Living award.

Hadelich stands out . . . for his prodigious technique, gorgeous tone, and ability to deliver . . . with distinctive interpretive flair.” (The New York Times)

“there was gripping theatre to be experienced . . . in Kahane’s molten, eloquent, urgent piano playing” (Los Angeles Times)
