Echoes of the past resonate into the future in this celebration of a lineage leading to some of tomorrow’s most promising talents. More than four years after his death, Henryk Górecki’s Fourth Symphony—completed by his son Mikolaj—receives its United States premiere after a successful performance by the London Philharmonic Orchestra. In it, Górecki pays tribute to compatriot Alexandre Tansman, whose memorial to Igor Stravinsky in turn opens the evening. Superstar violinist Nikolaj Znaider solos on Sibelius’s Violin Concerto, playing the famous 1741 Guarneri violin “Kreisler,” on loan from the Royal Danish Theater.
- Tansman—Stelè in memoriam Igor Stravinsky: More than a tribute, this monument almost seems to bring the Russian master back to life with its swift escalation from glimmering mystery to rancorous bombast.
- Sibelius—Violin Concerto: Hushed strings cushion the entrance of the lead violinist in the first movement of Sibelius’s only concerto, which transitions into a melodic solo spiked with dissonance and a third movement of staggering technical difficulty.
- Górecki—Symphony No. 4: Completed posthumously by his son, Górecki’s follow-up to the slow-burning success of his third symphony traded that work’s serenity for something bold, dark, and prophetically funereal.
Los Angeles Philharmonic
The orchestra performs concerts that tunefully blend classical works with new pieces, and continually seeks new ways to engage audiences. Many evenings, for instance, are preceded by an Upbeat Live talk, covering the program's historical and cultural context and opening the floor for Q&As with guest artists. A thriving youth orchestra program, YOLA, shares the joys of classical music with a fresher-faced generation. And the Green Umbrella program invites guests to hear world-premiere compositions. That novel approach to listener engagement seems to have caught on—every year, Los Angeles Philharmonic shares music with more than two million ears.
