LA Phil: The Planets

April 24-26, 2020

Felipe LARA: Double Concerto (U.S. premiere, LA Phil commission)
HOLST: The Planets

Each planet in Holst’s stirring suite of orchestral portraits takes its character from astrological descriptions, giving it a distinct, highly colorful profile, from the frighteningly war-bent Mars to the mysterious, ethereal Neptune. Principal Guest Conductor Susanna Mälkki also shares a new concerto for flute and bass by Felipe Lara, a Brazilian-born composer based in Jersey City.
