About this Performance

LA Phil violin Jin-Shan Dai curates a wide-ranging program that offers the orchestra’s bass players a rare chance in the chamber music spotlight. Opening the night is the Concertino by Erwin Schulhoff, whose music blends the late-Romantic style of his mentor Dvořák with elements of post-WWI expressionism and even jazz. Prokofiev’s Quintet picks up that early-20th-century thread with unapologetic glee, chromaticism, and Stravinsky-inspired rhythmic flair. The second half of the concert pivots to one of Franz Schubert’s most popular and loved works, the leisurely and uplifting “Trout” Quintet.
