Beethoven and Adams with LA Phil and pianist Leif Ove Andsnes
“From October 9 to 12, Gustavo Dudamel leads the Los Angeles Philharmonic in the finale to the mutli-season Beethoven cycle with pianist Leif Ove Andsnes.
The performances see the Norwegian pianist as soloist in Beethoven’s Concerto No. 5, “Emperor,” as well as the composer’s Choral Fantasy with the Los Angeles Master Chorale. Framed by these two Beethoven works is the American composer John Adams's Harmonium, a work for chorus an orchestra based on poetry by John Donne and Emily Dickinson.
