Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra Presents Kahane Returns!

Saturday, March 17, 2018 @ 8:00 pm

Jeffrey Kahane, who stepped down as LACO music director in June 2017 after a 20-year tenure, makes his first appearance in his new role as the Orchestra’s conductor laureate with the West Coast premiere of Pierre Jalbert’s Violin Concerto, featuring LACO concertmaster Margaret Batjer. A co-commission by LACO, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and Minnesota Orchestra, Jalbert’s work was written specifically for the three orchestras’ concertmasters. Kahane also conducts Respighi’s Three Botticelli Pictures, a vivid aural impression of three of the Renaissance master’s famous paintings, and continues LACO’s multi-year exploration of Haydn’s famed 12 London symphonies with Symphony No. 99 in E-flat major, the seventh in the sequence.

Program includes:

Jeffrey Kahane, conductor
Margaret Batjer, violin

RESPIGHI – Three Botticelli Pictures
PIERRE JALBERT – Violin Concerto (LACO co-commission, West Coast premiere)
HAYDN – Symphony No. 99 in E-flat major
