About This Performance

Lutoslawsky Centenary
See all Lutosławski Centenary concerts

Shadows and night haunt this rich program, from the complex counterpoint and flickering chiaroscuro of Salonen’s Nyx (Greek goddess of the night), through Schumann’s equally mercurial Piano Concerto and Lutosławski’s Surrealist vocal nocturne, to the swirling chromatic winds tossing Dante’s adulterous lovers in Tchaikovsky’s tone poem.

Come for:

Brilliant young French pianist David Fray in Schumann’s ardently Romantic concerto, which he wrote for his wife, Clara.

And more:

Acclaimed Canadian baritone Gerald Finley in Lutosławski’s evocative interpretation of disordered sleep, which Salonen and the LA Phil recorded.
