Jeffrey Kahane goes behind the scenes of the Discover series in a fascinating podcast with KUSC’s Brian Lauritzen. On Saturday, February 23, Kahane takes audiences into the music of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4, followed by a performance of the work with LACO, which Kahane conducts from the piano.

In this podcast, Kahane divulges the importance of this work to him personally and professionally, discusses how stunningly original the Concerto was to the audience at its premiere and explores the Orpheus myth associated with the work, while commenting on the 100-year old debate about whether music has a story to tell audiences in the first place.

Join Kahane and Lauritzen for this podcast before you take in the latest instillation of LACO’s popular Discover series.
