About This Performance
The collaboration of great artists is a touchstone of the successful synergy that makes the LA Phil such a respected force on the cultural music scene. Three Finnish compatriots come together in this program – Conductor Laureate Esa-Pekka Salonen and his longtime colleagues, composer Magnus Lindberg, and cellist Anssi Karttunen – to premiere a new LA Phil-commissioned work for cello and orchestra. Masterworks by Debussy and Bartók provide a rich context for this exploration of sensuality and sonority in the acclaimed Walt Disney Concert Hall acoustic.
Our Conductor Laureate and a close musical friend in a world premiere.
A quintessential Salonen program, surrounding a world premiere with 20th-century classics for which he is well-known and much admired.
