Composer Salonen: Wing on Wing

Our Conductor Laureate revisits the piece he composed for the opening of Walt Disney Concert Hall alongside music of Beethoven and Mozart.

The second program celebrating our Conductor Laureate as a composer concludes with the latest edition of his Wing on Wing, the piece he wrote for the opening of Walt Disney Concert Hall. Inspired by Frank Gehry’s sailing imagery – also the source of his title – Salonen takes full advantage of the orchestra and the Hall’s brilliant acoustics, such as placing sopranos across from each other in the Orchestra East and West sections of the audience. It’s a celebration in sound of a long-held dream come true.

Launching this marvelous program is young Norwegian violinist Vilde Frang, whose profound musicianship and unassailable virtuosity have already established her throughout Europe as a leading light in the music world. She makes her much-anticipated LA Phil debut performing Beethoven’s towering Violin Concerto, a masterpiece of noble lyricism, which set the bar for all such works to come.

Schumann Focus: Concert 1

Dudamel and Mitsuko Uchida – one of the world’s foremost Schumann interpreters – reveal the Romantic great.

Learn More

Although his life was difficult, to say the least, ending prematurely in madness, Robert Schumann nonetheless composed music that elevates us through its pure spirit and unique personal character. Over three weekends, Gustavo Dudamel delves deeply into Schumann’s four symphonies, two greatest concertos, and a rarely heard oratorio, offering us a portrait of the man through his finest creations.

Joining these programs for Schumann’s only Piano Concerto is the remarkable Mitsuko Uchida, acknowledged as one of the foremost interpreters of Schumann’s keyboard music. The Concerto itself is an absolute masterpiece of mid-19th-century composition and an ideal way to become acquainted with Schumann’s writing.

Astonishingly, the “Spring” Symphony was sketched in only four days. In it, the composer was attempting to capture the anticipation and arrival of springtime, with all its attendant feelings.

Pre-concert Event

Drinks in THE GARDEN
Come early on Friday night, starting at 6:30pm, and enjoy complimentary drinks and a unique view of the DTLA skyline from the Garden.
