Firsts and a fond farewell: Kahane opens the concert with a new work by Christopher Cerrone, composer of the opera Invisible Cities premiered at Union Station, and closes with LACO’s first-ever Orchestral Series performance of Schubert’s final symphony. At the heart of the evening is a signature experience of the Kahane era: Jeffrey conducting Mozart from the keyboard. For his farewell, Kahane has chosen Mozart’s final piano concerto. No doubt, he will again let ‘Mozart’s shimmering cascading phrases convey the emotion’ (Omaha World-Herald ). Be there!
