Why See Los Angeles Philharmonic - Emanuel Ax Plays Mozart?
TWO SPECIAL GUESTS & A WORLD PREMIERE
The Los Angeles Philharmonic's Conductor Laureate Ess-Pekka Salonen returns to the Walt Disney Concert Hall with an intriguing program of works by Mozart and Beethoven, which sandwich a stunning world premiere work by modern minimalist composer Louis Andriessen. To top it off, the ensemble welcomes Grammy-winning American piano icon Emmanuel Ax and Dutch soprano Nora Fischer to the stage for the trio of effervescent pieces.
The program begins with Mozart's fanfare-laden Piano Concerto No. 22, during which Ax and Fischer will join proceedings for the concerto's resplendent orchestral color, leaping melodic lines and intricate passage-work. After a brief intermission, things continue with Andriessen's Only One, a LA Phil-commissioned work that heralds a host of new material from the avant-garde boundary pusher. The evening comes to a close with Beethoven's Symphony No. 1, a Mozart and Haydn-influenced piece written when Beethoven was just 25 years old. It heralded great things to come for the young genius!
