About This Performance
The organ makes a famous addition to the sonic mass of Saint-Saëns' immortal Third Symphony (which also includes a part for piano four-hands), and USC composer (and recent Grammy winner) Stephen Hartke extends that repertoire with a work specifically inspired by the Walt Disney Concert Hall organ.
Come for: More than 6,000 pipes worth of musical exuberance when we celebrate Walt Disney Concert Hall's grandest resident instrument with an organ extravaganza.
And more: Audacious arranger and performer Cameron Carpenter plays his adaptation of Scriabin's Piano Sonata No. 2, music depicting a storm at sea.
Friday night's concert marks the first in our Inside the Music with Brian Lauritzen series. Designed and hosted by KUSC’s award-winning classical radio personality himself, Lauritzen's goal is to guide journeys of musical discovery. Each performance offers a multi-layered experience including a video episode emailed before each performance; pre- and post-concert discussions with host and artists; and ways to engage online for further discussion.
