Wow, snoresville. The LA Phil under Salonen was much more adventurous. What happened? At least this May 15 there’s this: Slatkin conducting Martinů: Cello Concerto No. 1.
You do realize that in this posting Tim was talking about Orange County programming, do you? Because nothing like that “happened” at the LA Phil: it remains as “adventurous” as ever. For example, this week the orchestra led by its music director is performing a program in which the oldest piece was written in 1940s, a piano concerto is from the 1960s, and two other pieces are 21st century works by living composers who were both in the audience last night. The next season of LA Phil includes 21 commissions, 14 world premieres, 5 US and 5 West Coast premieres. If any major symphony orchestra anywhere is being any more “adventurous”, please let us know about it.
What MarK said. Things are fine and dandy at LA Phil these days in terms of repertoire.
