Guest conductor Peter Oundjian, in his second LACO appearance, will lead the orchestra in Suite from Stravinsky’s ballet Pulcinella, highlighting LACO principal trumpet David Washburn, and includes Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 in G Minor, one of the three final Mozart symphonies LACO is performing this season as part of “Mozart in Focus.”  Oundjian, the “consistently illuminating” (Gramophone) music director of both the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and the Royal National Orchestra in Scotland, made his LACO debut in 2015. Jennifer Koh is LACO’s guest artist-in-residence for the fall, participating in masterclasses, community engagement and free public performances along with her concert appearances. Named Musical America’s 2016 Instrumentalist of the Year and winner of the 1994 International Tchaikovsky Competition, Koh has premiered more than 60 works written for her and is “one of our most thoughtful and intense musicians” (The New York Times).

Concert Preludes are fun, informative and free to all ticket holders.

Join us one hour before each concert in the theatre. Some Preludes feature LIVE performances of short chamber works. All provide interesting insights into the music and the artists.

This concert is sponsored by Genesis.
