The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra Presents
Starts at 8:00 PM
The celebration of Jeffrey Kahane’s 15th anniversary as LACO music director concludes with particular poignancy. Father and son Jeffrey and Gabriel Kahane appear on stage together as conductor and composer/soloist for the first time.
Inspired by poet Hart Crane’s To Brooklyn Bridge, Gabriel’s new work, Crane Palimpsest, refers to a parchment that has been reused, or an object with multiple layers that lie beneath the surface. The work explores both the relationship between the vernacular and more formal compositional styles and approaches, as well as Crane’s love for New York and the Brooklyn Bridge. Gabriel intersperses his own text with Crane’s poems creating a new composition that juxtaposes two seemingly conflicting styles into one beautiful whole.
The evening opens with one of Charles Ives’ most popular works, Three Places in New England, which incorporates popular American tunes, and closes with Haydn’s masterwork, the exuberant “London” Symphony.
