About this Performance
Camille Saint-Saëns’ adventurous, final symphony has been engrained in popular culture, with themes from its memorable triumphant last movement appearing in pop songs and as the main theme in the film Babe. Dedicated to Franz Liszt—and featuring the LA Phil’s own Joanne Pearce Martin in this performance—the “Organ” symphony led fellow composer Charles Gounod to hail Saint-Saëns as “the French Beethoven.” LA Phil Principal Concertmaster Martin Chalifour performs Maurice Ravel’s virtuosic violin showpiece, and Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra Music Director Louis Langrée teams up again with acclaimed composer Jonathan Bailey Holland for a world premiere symphony.
This performance is generously supported in part by the Kohl Virtuoso Violin Fund.See other concerts in this series
