Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra’s intimate and engaging Baroque Series – a perennial audience favorite – opens with an all-Bach program at the Huntington, curated and led by Concertmaster and Director of Chamber Music Margaret Batjer, featuring acclaimed bass-baritone Dashon Burton.
By News Desk
Burton, a two-time Grammy Award winner who delivers “the kind of top-shelf performance that has sealed his reputation as one of today’s most compelling performers” (The Boston Globe), will perform Bach’s Ich Habe Genug, a reflection on gratitude and the power of perspective. The performance of Bach and Burton at The Huntington is presented in memory of Warner Henry with generous support from The Henry Family.
Other Baroque gems to be presented include Bach’s exuberant Orchestral Suite No. 1; Concerto for Flute, Violin and Harpsichord, noted for its vibrant interchange between the three solo instruments and orchestra; and Concerto for Three Violins, a technically demanding masterwork hailed for its tremendous emotional depth.
LACO’s Baroque Series provides insight into the genesis of orchestral repertoire from early Baroque schools through the pre-Classical period.
The local performance will be held on Sunday, February 4, 2024, 7:30 pm, at The Huntington’s Rothenberg Hall in San Marino. An additional performance will be held on Saturday, February 3, 7:30 pm, at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills.
Tickets are $58 at The Huntington. Visit this website or call 213-221-3920. Will Call opens inside the lobby of Rothenberg Hall 90 minutes before the concert. Note that the restaurant and concessions will be closed on Sunday.
