LA Philharmonic Concerts
Mirga Conducts Beethoven and Ravel
A rising star in the world of conducting, 29-year-old Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla takes the podium to lead the Los Angeles Philharmonic—as well as guest instrumentalists and choirs—in a full lineup of classic works. An associate conductor with the LA Philharmonic, Gražinytė-Tyla was also named Music Director of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra earlier this year.
- Beethoven—Leonore Overture No. 3: Beethoven struggled to produce a satisfactory overture for his first and only opera, eventually producing four such pieces. This third version encompasses the emotional range of the piece as a whole, from the terse silence of a prison cell to a hard-won triumph over corruption and injustice.
- Beethoven—Choral Fantasy: “When love and strength are united, divine grace is bestowed upon Man,” declares the closing line of Beethoven’s two-movement choral piece. This predecessor to the composer’s famous Ninth Symphony shares many of its same themes, from text celebrating art to the musical phrases themselves.
- Ravel—Mother Goose Suite: Composed for two pianos, Ravel wrote the Mother Goose Suite as a gift for Mimi and Jean Godebski, ages 6 and 7. Throughout the work, Ravel naturally draws on familiar children’s tales such as Sleeping Beauty, Tom Thumb, and Beauty and the Beast to entertain his young audience.
- Ravel—Daphnis et Chloé (Suite No. 2): Presented in all 58 splendid minutes of its entirety, Ravel’s passionate two-part ballet tells the story of a romance between the goatherd Daphnis and the shepherdess Chloé in ancient Greece. This lush ballet, which concludes with a marriage at the altar of the nymphs and a wild bacchanale, is often considered Ravel’s most beautiful work, with some of the loveliest and most evocative melodies of the 20th century
Copland and Marsalis
The Philharmonic highlights two American composers—one iconic, one just beginning his rise—in works from Aaron Copland and trumpeter-turned-composer Wynton Marsalis. Having its West Coast premiere at the Hollywood Bowl, Marsalis’s Violin Concerto will feature the bow of Nicola Benedetti and the baton of Cristian Măcelaru.
- Copland—Symphony No. 3: In the first, warm movement of Copland’s final symphonic work, he seems to bid his audience a fond farewell. The fourth movement’s variation on Fanfare for the Common Man, otherwise known as “Steve,” triumphantly closes the season with resounding horn calls.
- Also on the Program: Copland’s An Outdoor Overture

About 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.
