About this Performance
Bartók’s groundbreaking and eerie Music for Strings, Percussion, and Celesta launches a rich, full program that ends with Sibelius’ final symphony, the one-movement Seventh, led by Esa-Pekka Salonen about whom The New Yorker raved “[he] was born to conduct Sibelius.” In between, a much-anticipated premiere from Daníel Bjarnason featuring the highly celebrated pianist Víkingur Ólafsson, both artists from Iceland’s wildly creative music scene who were stars of the LA Phil’s 2017 Reykjavík Festival.See other concerts in this series
