Classical Pick of the Week: Sounds like BS

Stories like these are only possible with your help!
You have the power to keep local news strong for the coming months. Your financial support today keeps our reporters ready to meet the needs of our city. Thank you for investing in your community.

As the seasons for many reputable music groups come to an end, there are fewer options to choose from every week, so feel free to spare yourself of any extra stress and check LAist for any news on upcoming concerts. Hope you are all managing to keep yourselves busy and not counting down the days until the Hollywood Bowl season begins.

We are revisiting the Disney Hall once more, which has been prone to several schedule and program changes in recent weeks. The Knussen world premiere piece has been replaced by "Tout un monde lointain..." Dutilleux composed this piece for the late Rostropovich, and like several of his works were inspired by texts of Baudelaire. The other pieces are by Bartok and Stravinsky, including "Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta" which you might remember hearing from a fairly well known Stanley Kubrick film called The Shining. The program is performed on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, so check it out when you can, ideally before this season ends.

Bartok and Stravinsky
