    WHAT:  French conductor Stéphane Denève returns to the Hollywood Bowl to lead the Los Angeles Philharmonic in Classical Tuesday and Classical Thursday series concerts, Tuesday, July 24, at 8 pm, and Thursday, July 26, at 8 pm. The Tuesday concert offers a program of Romantic Russian works including the rarely heard Conus Violin Concerto, played by LA Phil Principal Concertmaster Martin Chalifour. The program also features Stokowski’s Symphonic Synthesis of Mussorgsky’s Boris Godunov and Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances. Denève continues the week leading the LA Phil in a program of quintessentially American music by Bernstein and Gershwin paired with Ravel’s Daphnis and Chloé Suite No. 2 and his jazzy Piano Concerto played by the formidable Jean-Yves Thibaudet.

     

    Denève, who is on the shortlist for the Gramophone “Artist of the Year Award” 2012, last worked with the LA Phil in December of 2010. Thibaudet, who was inducted into the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame in 2010, toured with the LA Phil in May of 2010, and most recently performed with the orchestra in January of this year, at Walt Disney Concert Hall.
