Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra: making great music personal



concerto finale

  • Anna Clyne Within Her Arms
  • Hugo Gonzalez-Pioli The Love of Zero (Bassoon Concerto with Robert Florey’s 1927 short film) US premiere
  • Beethoven Coriolan Overture, Op.62
  • Shostakovich Cello Concerto No. 1 in E-flat major, Op. 107


Be there for a triumphant return and an auspicious debut! MacArthur “Genius Grant” recipient Alisa Weilerstein, who graduated from Colombia in Russian history, brings a depth of understanding to the concerto Shostakovich originally wrote for the great cellist Rostropovich. LACO principal bassoon Kenneth Munday introduces you to a novel bassoon concerto he performs with Florey’s avant-garde silent film. The music is the creation of talented USC graduate Hugo Gonzalez-Pioli, and another LACO first.

“Whatever [Weilerstein] plays sounds custom-composed for her.” (New York Magazine)
