Classical Pick of the Week: The Other New LA Phil Addition
This is the first video from Matmos' new album, and you can catch them this Saturday at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. You knew it would happen. After countless collaborations and performances with the LA Phil, John Adams has signed on as the orchestra's creative chair and is in charge of the first festival under Dudamel: West Coast, Left Coast. The opening event will feature the Kronos Quartet, Terry Riley, Matmos, and Mike Einziger (of Incubus). Although Dudamel isn't necessarily known for his interpretations of contemporary classical music, he'll have some friendly faces to help him out. Dudamel will conduct Esa-Pekka Salonen's LA Variations and John Adam's City Noir, a piece he conducted in his inaugural concert at the Walt Disney Concert Hall.
Tickets are still available for this Saturday at 9:30 PM. It's a later show, so you can enjoy a longer dinner. If you're interested in this festival and can't make the opening night concert, you can click here to buy tickets for a subscription or check out the performances on later dates.
