The composer/conductor is back at the L.A. Philharmonic this week and next, for the first time as conductor laureate. In the video above, he discusses Bartok’s “Bluebeard’s Castle” with the orchestra in rehearsal. He performs the opera this weekend.
David Mermelstein talks to the composer Magnus Lindberg, whose “Graffiti” Salonen also conducts this weekend. (Click on the word “talks” to read the article.)
And Reed Johnson interviews Salonen.
I plan to attend tonight’s concert and hope to have a review for you tomorrow.
where on earth is gustavo dudamel?
Please, Tim, forgive me for pointing out a couple of errors here.
The link that is supposed to open your “where on earth” post does not do that but instead it actually leads to the article about Esa-Pekka.
The name of the journalist who wrote that article is Reed Johnson. You may have been thinking of the composer Augusta Read Thomas for some reason.
Thanks, MarK. Corrections made.
