This season marks Susanna Mälkki’s first as the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Principal Guest Conductor. Mälkki’s unique programming will feature a mix of new music and core composers with three subscription weeks and a Green Umbrella concert. Her programs include the U.S. premiere of Zimmermann’s concerto for cello and orchestra, choreographed for dancers from the Tero Saarinen Company, and the world premiere of a new work by Marcos Balter.
This performance is premiered by the remarkable partnership of Mälkki and Josefowicz, Francesconi’s hallucinogenic concerto is both modern and sonically beautiful, a perfect program partner for Berlioz’ drug-induced dream/nightmare from 185 years earlier.
