THE PHIL SAYS GOODBYE TO CHANDLER
LOS ANGELES -- The
final LA Philharmonic concerts ever at the Dorothy Chander Pavilion will
take place on May 22-25, with Pierre Boulez conducting a colorful musical
showcase of the orchestra's many strengths.
Boulez has picked pieces by Janacek (Sinfonietta), Ravel (Piano Concert in G, with soloist Mitsuko Uchida), Messiaen Oiseaux exotiques, and Haydn (Symphony No. 45).
In Haydn's famous "Farewell" symphony, the players, one by one, finish their parts and leave, with only two violins remaining at the end. It's a fitting choice of music.
Call (323) 850-2000.
COFFEE, CAKES & CHAMBER MUSIC ON A SUNDAY AFTERNOON
LOS ANGELES -- As the L.A. Times noted, "some of the best chamber groups in the world visit the Southland under the auspices of The Music Guild." A case in point is the concert coming up on Sunday, May 11 at 3 PM when the BLAHA-TAYLOR-LEONARD PIANO TRIO performs at the University Synagogue with a program that includes pieces by Haydn, Shostakovich and Schubert.
TMG's subsequent attraction will be on Sun. June 15 when the Calder String Quarter tackles compositions by Haydn, Bartok and Mendelssohn.
Complimentary coffee and cakes are served from 2.30-3 PM and at intermission at the University Synagogue, 11960 Sunset Blvd. in L.A. The series is made possible by support from Richard Colburn and the Roth Family Foundation. Call (323) 954-0404
