The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO) celebrates the 100th Anniversary of Ligeti’s Birth with a chamber music program featuring acclaimed pianist Fabio Bidini.
Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO) presents Echoes of Austria: Ligeti at 100, spotlighting LACO’s stellar solo winds and acclaimed guest pianist Fabio Bidini, the Carol Colburn Grigor Piano Chair at Colburn School, on Sunday, November 6, 2022, 7 pm, at Zipper Hall in downtown LA. Celebrating the 100th anniversary of Ligeti’s birth in 1923, the program includes two wind quintets considered among the wind repertoire’s most important 20th century additions – Ligeti’s Six Bagatelles, arranged for wind quintet from his noted piano cycle Musica ricercata, and Barber’s Summer Music, evocative of the sounds and feel of summer. Also featured are Schubert’s early piano quartet Adagio and Rondo in F major, D. 487, and Brahms’ exquisite and powerful Piano Quintet in F minor, Op.34. It is the first of three programs in LACO’s 2022-23 chamber music series, each curated by Concertmaster and Director of Chamber Music Margaret Batjer and highlighting a different facet of the diverse chamber repertoire.
