About This Performance

This vivid program of orchestral showpieces contrasts the music of masters of instrumental color and shading, climaxing in Respighi’s popular depiction of Roman pine groves.

The program also includes a work by Donatoni – one of the conductor’s teachers – that Salonen and the LA Phil premiered in 2001. “I love the kaleidoscopic world of Donatoni, the sudden twists and turns and the sheer beauty of the surface of the music,” Salonen said. It also features a showpiece for a widely acclaimed young pianist, the masterpiece Ravel wrote for a pianist who lost his right arm in World War I.

Please note: The previously scheduled program, which explores the musical decade of the Weimar Republic and features music by Kurt Weill and his Berlin contemporaries, has been postponed until the 2019/20 season.
