Classical Pick of the Week: You Can Stand Under This Umbrella
The Green Umbrella series is a distinctive program of the LA Phil that features cutting edge programming rarely seen in a major concert hall.. New works are commissioned and performed along with works that have become staples in classical music repertory over the last 50 years or so. This weeks classical pick takes us to the Disney Hall this Tuesday and includes two WORLD premieres and works by Elliot Carter and Ginastera.
The works are conducted by Joana Carneiro, an outstanding young conductor (the link for her profile includes the numbers 1337!) who is inspiring and leading the way for more females to pursue conducting (other notables include Marin Alsop and Karen Keltner). She is joined by several well-known artists in the contemporary classical scene, including pianist Ursula Oppens and percussionist Steven Schick.Tickets are still available, and at 22-47 dollars, are a huge bargain since tickets are usually two or three times more expensive.
