chopin: piano concerto

What ever happened to your first love? Do you ever think back and smile?

Due to a growing revolt in Warsaw, Chopin was forced to leave behind his young love, soprano Konstancja Gładkowska, and immigrate to Paris. Though separated, Chopin continued to be inspired by her, composing the Larghetto of his virtuosic Concerto No. 2 with her in mind. Gładkowska eventually married another, and Chopin found other loves as well. But perhaps on certain anniversaries or when they heard “their” song, they thought fondly of each other…and smiled. In her LA Chamber Orchestra debut, “spectacular pianist” Natasha Paremski takes you down memory lane. (American Record Guide)

westside connections 3

LA-native John Rubinstein is a prolific film and television actor, director, composer and Tony-award winner (Children of a Lesser God). The son of the legendary concert pianist Arthur Rubinstein, he faced the challenge of finding his own voice in Hollywood. The Romantic works of Rachmaninoff, Chopin and Brahms are an homage to the legacy of father and son. Guest pianist and From the Top host Christopher O’Riley joins LACO music director Jeffrey Kahane and LACO virtuosos Margaret Batjer and Andrew Shulman.
Following the Orchestra’s signature “conversations” style, the musicians introduce the pieces from the stage. There is no intermission.

bach & mozart: double concertos

Life is busy. Kids, errands, clients, traffic…so much to do. And often all at once.

For one evening, leave the multitasking to LACO music director Jeffrey Kahane as he conducts two double concertos from the keyboard and a third from the podium. Kahane is joined by 12-year-old Ray Ushikubo for Bach and LA favorite Joanne Pearce Martin for Mozart. Jeremy Denk, music director of the 2014 Ojai Festival, is the soloist for the fiendishly finger-twisting Ligeti concerto. Join us for feats of multi-musicality to eclipse the memory of your morning routine.

25th anniversary silent film

LACO proudly marks a quarter-century of side-splitting comedy paired with live music with a silent version of the Charlie Chaplin classic Modern Times. In addition, the evening celebrates the 100th anniversary of Kid Auto Races at Venice (the first film in which Chaplin appears in the now-classic Little Tramp costume) and the 125th anniversary of Chaplin’s birth.
