ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE:

Górecki’s Fourth Symphony, which was left unfinished at the composer’s death and now receives its American premiere in a completion by his son Mikolaj, pays homage to the composer’s Polish colleague Alexandre Tansman. Tansman’s own tribute to Stravinsky opens the program, followed by Sibelius’ mercilessly beautiful Violin Concerto, performed by the Danish-Israeli master Nikolaj Znaider.

Friday’s performance is part of our new series “Inside the Music with Brian Lauritzen,” in which you’ll get access to pre-show videos and talks, post-show Q&As with the musicians, and even an online game.

About This Performance
As a cabaret pianist on the run from the Nazis in occupied Warsaw and then a staunchly independent composer denounced by Communist party apparatchiks, Witold Lutosławski survived some of the 20th-century’s grimmest years, and his cultural importance seems only to have grown since his death. Lutosławski became a close artistic associate of the LA Phil and Esa-Pekka Salonen in the last decade of his life, and his First Symphony will be recorded at these concerts to complete a Salonen/LA Phil cycle of the composer’s four symphonies for Sony Classical.

Come for:
A quintessential Salonen program. He has paired Beethoven and Lutosławski before, for his Beethoven Unbound festival in the 2004/05 season.

And more:
Lutosławski wrote his Fanfare for Los Angeles Philharmonic, a short piece for brass and percussion, in celebration of the LA Phil’s 75th Anniversary Season.
