From the Big Easy to the Big Apple-The LPO’s Carnegie Hall Program
February 24, 2018 at 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
On Tuesday, February 27, the LPO will be making it’s Carnegie Hall debut! Get a preview of the LPO’s exciting Carnegie Hall debut program without the airfare. The program begins with a few exotic selections. Revueltas’ La noche de los Mayas, inspired by Mayan culture, culminates in a blaze of pulsing rhythms and wild percussion, while Philip Glass’s Days and Nights in Rocinha is an evocative tribute to the largest favela in Brazil. There are more fireworks as the concert concludes with Glass’s Concerto Fantasy for Two Timpanists and Orchestra, a thrilling showcase requiring Olympian virtuosity from the two soloists who play nine timpani between them.
