The 2015–16 Season
- Chamber Music (Tuesday, December 1, at 8 p.m.): A 14-piece orchestra opens the evening with Bach’s Adagio and Fugue in C major, arranged by concertmaster Martin Chalifour. A fusion of Argentinean music and klezmer melodies from contemporary composer Golijov concludes the night, and the concert is preceded by a wine-tasting reception.
- Dudamel & Shaham (Friday, December 4, at 8 p.m.): Music & Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel directs Avery Fisher Prize-winning violinist Gil Shaham through Bach’s two surviving violin concertos, which may have been played by the master himself during his tenure as concertmaster. Mendelssohn’s sweeping Symphony No. 1 ties the evening together.
- Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla & Hilary Hahn (Thursday, December 10, at 8 p.m.): Gražinytė-Tyla is a rising star, Assistant Conductor, and winner of the Salzburg Festival Young Conductor’s Award. Hilary Hahn would be a rising talent also—if she hadn’t released her first album at age 16. They’re performing Vieuxtemps’ rarely heard Violin Concerto No. 4, along with Tchaikovsky’s breathtaking Symphony No. 4.
- Ax Plays Franck (January 9–10): Known for his Mendelssohn Trios with Yo-Yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman, Polish pianist Emanuel Ax puts César Franck’s brooding, one-movement Symphonic Variations at the center of a program of mostly French works that ends with Schumann’s Symphony No. 2.
- Dudamel & Music from the Americas (Thursday, February 25, at 8 p.m.): Dudamel returns to conduct a show of three composers from the United States, including a world premiere by Andrew Norman, John Williams’ Soundings, and Copland’s Appalachian Spring. From further afield comes Ginastera’s Piano Concerto No. 1, which aims to channel the spirit of Argentina.
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.
