About This Performance

Among their composers’ most enduringly popular works, Rachmaninoff’s Second Piano Concerto and Sibelius’ Second Symphony were both begun in Italy, about a year apart. All three of the pieces on this program in fact, were composed within ten years at the beginning of the 20th century, but each reveals utterly idiosyncratic hallmarks of orchestral color and musical fantasy.

Come for:

Lars Vogt – “one of the most extraordinary musicians of any age group,” according to Simon Rattle – plays Rachmaninoff’s lyrically moving and technically dazzling concerto.

And more:

Young British conductor Ticciati leads Sibelius’ Second with its exultant finale and is joined by outstanding German virtuoso Lars Vogt for Rachmaninoff’s beloved concerto.

Pianist Lars Vogt will be signing CDs at the LA Phil Store after each performance.

Programs, artists, dates, prices and availability subject to change.
