Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra “Mozart: Symphony No. 39”

May 19, 2018 - May 20, 2018

Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra’s (LACO) 50th Anniversary season concludes with guest conductor Sameer Patel leading the world premiere of Derrick Spiva Jr.’s From Here A Path, the second part of a trilogy for chamber orchestra, and Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No. 1 in E-Flat Major, featuring noted cellist and classical music innovator Joshua Roman, on Saturday, May 19, 8 pm, at Glendale’s Alex Theatre, and Sunday, May 20, 2018, 7 pm, at Royce Hall.  In addition, Concertmaster Margaret Batjer leads from the first chair both Vivaldi’s Concerto Grosso in D Minor, the first work ever performed when LACO launched 50 years ago, and Mozart’s Symphony No. 39 in E-Flat Major, which wraps the Orchestra’s exploration this season of the composer’s final three symphonies.  Spiva, describing his work, says, “From Here A Path draws inspiration from Husago, a West African piece from Ghana’s Ewe peo ple that includes drumming, dancing and singing, kaval flute playing from Eastern Europe and elements of Hindustani classical music.  The title references the momentum and resistance one gathers to reach a point.”
