Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra: LACO Presents Horizons: Shostakovich + Skye
Saturday, April 20, 2024, 8:00 PM PDT
Category: California Concerts - Southern CA

Jaime Martín conducts the Orchestra’s West Coast premiere of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO)-commissioned third and final work in Artistic Advisor Derrick Skye’s To Be A Horizon, a compelling multicultural exploration that engages in an endless pursiut of connection in order to reconstruct musical and cultural divides. Skye describes it as “a dazzling musical travelogue that links North Indian Hindustani classical music with the music of the Balkans and the Volta region of Ghana.” The program continues with LACO Assistant Concertmaster Tereza Stanislav and Principal Viola Yura Lee sharing their stellar artistry as soloists on Mozart’s searingly beautiful Sinfonia Concertante in E-flat major violin and viola. Beethoven’s transitional Symphony No. 4, celebrating Beethoven’s legacy of breaking musical boundaries, caps the concert.
