LA Chamber Orchestra 5: Song of the Earth


Alex Theatre
216 N. Brand Blvd.
Glendale, CA


Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO) features prolific composer/conductor Matthias Pintscher leading his own work, Transir for Flute & Orchestra, with noted flutist Henrik Heide, on Saturday, March 2, 8 pm, at the Alex Theatre, and Sunday, March 3, 2019, 7 pm, at Royce Hall. The program also features three-time Grammy Award-winning mezzo-soprano Michelle DeYoung and acclaimed tenor Sean Panikkar in Mahler's transcendent Das Lied von der Erde (Song of the Earth), set to seven ancient Chinese poems and orchestrated by Glen Cortese. Pintscher, Music Director of Paris’ Ensemble Intercontemporain, the world's leading contemporary music ensemble founded by Pierre Boulez, will serve as the 2020 Music Director of the Ojai Music Festival. DeYoung appears frequently with many of the world's leading orchestras; Panikkar, an American of Sri Lankan heritage, recently starred in Philip Glass’s most recent opera, Satyagraha; and Heide, Associate Principal Flutist of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, has appeared as soloist with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and New World Symphony, among others. In additional to conducting this program, Pintscher curates the Orchestra’s SESSION event on Thursday, February 28, at Mack Sennett Studios, in which DeYoung makes a rare appearance in so intimate a setting.

Concert Preludes, pre-concert talks held one hour before curtain and free for ticket holders, provide insights into the program's music and artists.
