About This Performance
"There is not one superfluous note," Dvořák told his publisher about the slow movement of his Seventh Symphony. Though it begins with intense calm and peace, contained within are the seeds of turmoil. His footnote for this music was, "From the sad years." Thomas Adès’ "Concentric Paths," adds a postmodern edge from more recent years.
Come for: Basque conductor Juanjo Mena, who returns with two contrasting symphonies, the light and bright "Classical" tweak by Prokofiev and Dvorák’s intensely personal Seventh.
And more: Leila Josefowicz, an utterly fearless champion of new music, plays the Adès Violin Concerto, an LA Phil co-commission from 2005.
