SIBELIUS & GÓRECKI
Music from the Heart with the Los Angeles Philharmonic
Friday, Saturday & Sunday, January 16-18 @ 8:00 PM
Walt Disney Concert Hall
111 South Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90012
(Conductor: Andrey Boreyko)
ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE:
Górecki’s Fourth Symphony, which was left unfinished at the composer’s death and now receives its American premiere in a completion by his son Mikolaj, pays homage to the composer’s Polish colleague Alexandre Tansman. Tansman’s own tribute to Stravinsky opens the program, followed by Sibelius’ mercilessly beautiful Violin Concerto, performed by the Danish-Israeli master Nikolaj Znaider.
Friday’s performance is part of our new series “Inside the Music with Brian Lauritzen,” in which you’ll get access to pre-show videos and talks, post-show Q&As with the musicians, and even an online game.
