About This Performance
The gathering in L.A. of the world’s finest cellists, known as the Piatigorsky International Cello Festival, results in an embarrassment of riches at Walt Disney Concert Hall, with each of the weekend’s performances featuring a different cellist in a different concerto. Leonard Slatkin provides unity through beloved music by Berlioz.
Come for: For her LA Phil debut, fast-rising Argentine-French cellist Sol Gabetta has chosen Martinů’s vigorous and lyrical First Cello Concerto, a happy marriage of Czech folk music and 20th-century musical impulses that music lovers will enjoy discovering.
And more: Slatkin also leads exciting favorites by Rossini and Berlioz.
Presented as a part of the Piatigorsky International Cello Festival. Additional concerts:
PIATIGORSKY INTERNATIONAL CELLO FESTIVAL: Elgar
