LACO Presents Horizons: Shostakovich + Skye  

Details

Jaime Martín conducts the Orchestra’s West Coast premiere of the Los Angeles County Orchestra (LACO)-commissioned third and final work in Artistic Advisor Derrick Skye’s To Be A Horizon, a compelling multicultural exploration that engages in an endless pursuit of connection in order to reconstruct musical and cultural divides. Skye describes it as “a dazzling musical travelogue that links North Indian Hindustani classical music with the music of the Balkans and the Volta region of Ghana.” The program continues with LACO Assistant Concertmaster Tereza Stanislav and Principal Viola Yura Lee sharing their stellar artistry as soloists on Mozart’s searingly beautiful Sinfonia Concertante in E-flat major for violin and viola. Beethoven’s transitional Symphony No. 4, celebrating Beethoven’s legacy of breaking musical boundaries, caps the concert.
