Esa-Pekka Salonen, the longest-serving Music Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, returns in his new position, Conductor Laureate. His bold, visionary approach established the Philharmonic as one of the world‟s most renowned and accomplished orchestras. Esa-Pekka‟s recognition of the composers of the 20th and 21st centuries and continual advocacy for new music is demonstrated in the programs that will be performed over his two-week visit.
“When trying to imagine my return to the Los Angeles Philharmonic after 18 months I realized much to my surprise how organic and natural the idea felt,” said Esa-Pekka Salonen. “Therefore I decided to avoid a grand gesture (I‟m not very good at that anyway), and simply come back to continue a project spanning already over several decades, now in a different capacity. I also understood how much I miss everybody, the Orchestra, staff and the audience. And the Hall.”
“The two programs I‟ve chosen to conduct reflect this very idea. They don‟t carry any special message relating to my reunion with my colleagues and my long-time hometown. In fact the guiding principle is the same as always: music that excites and moves me, soloists I admire. It‟s that simple.”

"Salonen's first appearances as conductor laureate after his 17 years as music director, will begin Nov. 20 with the U.S. premiere of Magnus Lindberg's "Graffiti" on a program with Bartók's only opera, "Bluebeard's Castle." The following week Salonen will conduct scenes from Wagner with Welsh baritone Byrn Terfel. This unlikely collaboration came about, Salonen said, when he ran into Terfel at a soccer match in the Welsh capital of Cardiff. Terfel figured Salonen (whose wife, Jane, is Welsh) must be OK and decided then and there they should work together."

Hi,

Somehow when I read the websites that Bjorg posted, I missed that Bryn is giving a recital with Malcolm Martineau on November 22. I knew that he was singing three times with the LA Philharmonic on November 26, 27, and 28.

We can see Bryn perform four times in California in November. Laughing
