Kahane Returns!

March 17, 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Alex Theatre: Glendale

Event Overview

Jeffrey Kahane, who steps down as LACO music director in June 2017 after a 20-year tenure, makes his first appearance in his new role as the Orchestra’s conductor laureate with the West Coast premiere of Pierre Jalbert’s Violin Concerto, featuring LACO concertmaster Margaret Batjer. A co-commission by LACO, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and Minnesota Orchestra, Jalbert’s work was written specifically for the three orchestras’ concertmasters. Kahane also conducts Respighi’s Three Botticelli Pictures, a vivid aural impression of three of the Renaissance master’s famous paintings, and continues LACO’s multi-year exploration of Haydn’s famed 12 London symphonies with Symphony No. 99 in E-flat major, the seventh in the sequence.

Concert Preludes are fun, informative and free to all ticket holders.

Join us one hour before each concert in the theatre. Some Preludes feature LIVE performances of short chamber works. All provide interesting insights into the music and the artists.
