Guest conductor Karina Canellakis, winner of the 2016 Sir Georg Solti Conducting Award, makes her third LACO appearance since 2015 in a program featuring Dai Fujikura’s Secret Forest, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2 in D Major and Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 24 in C Minor performed by David Fray, a ‘gifted pianist’ (Chicago Tribune). Fujikura’s work has been described as ‘a riot of imaginative bird and insect noise – a private utopia well worth exploring’ (The Guardian).
