Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra Presents

BELL PLAYS BERNSTEIN

  • This event has passed.

LACO’s 2017-18 season-opening program launches the Orchestra’s 50th Anniversary season and helps kick off Leonard Bernstein’s centennial with acclaimed violinist Joshua Bell performing Bernstein’s lyrical Serenade (after Plato’s Symposium) for violin and orchestra inspired by Plato’s text on love, led by guest conductor Jaime Martín in his LACO debut. Martín also conducts Brahms’ Serenade No. 1 in D Major, noted for its prominent horn section and remarkable symphonic quality, and Mozart’s Overture to the opera, The Abduction from the Seraglio. Bell, one of the most celebrated violinists of his era and recipient of the Avery Fisher Prize, has recorded more than 40 CDs, garnering Grammy, Mercury, Gramophone and Echo Klassik awards. Named music director of the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields in 2011, he is the only person to hold the post since Sir Neville Marriner formed the orchestra in 1958. Bell last appeared with LACO in 2000. Martín, a prominent flautist turned conductor, is artistic director and principal conductor of Gävle Symphony Orchestra, chief conductor of the Orquestra de Cadaqués and artistic director of the Santander International Festival.
