Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra Presents Dutch Recorder Lucie Horsch In BAROQUE CONVERSATIONS, 3/2
by BWW News Desk - Feb 16, 2017

Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra's (LACO) Baroque Conversations series features the United States debut of 17-year-old Dutch recorder virtuoso Lucie Horsch in a program of Vivaldi, Handel, Purcell and Sammartini led by Grammy-winning conductor and early music specialist Stephen Stubbs on Thursday, March 2, 2017, 7:30 pm, at Zipper Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles. Horsch, the first recorder player ever signed to the prestigious Decca Classics label, is featured on Vivaldi's Concerto in C major for Recorder and Strings and Concerto in G minor for Recorder and Strings, "La Notte" as well as Sammartini's Concerto in F major for Recorder and Strings. Stubbs also conducts Purcell's Suite from The Fairy Queen and Vivaldi's Concerto in C major for Strings. Former LACO Principal Oboe Allan Vogel serves as guest host, offering commentary to open the program and moderating the post-concert Q&A. Stubbs, hailed for his "warm, well-paced" conducting (The Seattle Times), is one of the world's most respected lutenists, conductors and baroque opera specialists. After enjoying a 30-year career in Europe, he returned to his native Seattle in 2006, where he established Pacific MusicWorks, a production company that reflects his lifelong interest in both early music and contemporary performance. Stubbs is also the Boston Early Music Festival's (BEMF) permanent artistic co-director along with his long-time colleague Paul O'Dette, with whom he serves as co-musical director of all BEMF operas and recordings, which have garnered three Grammy Award nominations, and earned a Grammy for Best Opera Recording 2015. His extensive discography as conductor and solo lutenist includes more than 100 recordings. In 2013, Stubbs was appointed Senior Artist in Residence at the University of Washington School of Music. Horsch, winner of the 2016 Concertgebouw Young Talent Award, has been described as "the latest big thing in recorder playing" (The Guardian). She is considered one of the most remarkable musical talents of her generation and already in great demand internationally as a solo recorder player. She has performed at the Early Music Festival in Innsbruck, Austria; the Next Generation Festival in Bad Ragaz, Switzerland; the Grachtenfestival Amsterdam; the International Chambermusic Festival Utrecht; the International Organ Festival Haarlem; and the Flanders Festival in Ghent, among others. Horsch was also chosen to perform in the televised farewell concert for the former Queen Beatrix, appearing as a soloist with the Netherlands Wind Ensemble. An Ambassador for the recorder, she is eager to break down preconceptions about the instrument, experimenting with contemporary repertoire, jazz and pop music. She plays on recorders built by Fred Morgan, Doris Kulossa, Stephan Blezinger and Seiji Shirao, which she acquired with the generous support of the Prins Bernhard Foundation. She also uses a specially designed tenor flute from Tokyo. From a musical family, her parents are both cellists and her father is principal cellist of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. The enlightening five-concert Baroque Conversations series provides insight into the genesis of orchestral repertoire from early Baroque schools through the pre-classical period. Baroque Conversations is generously sponsored by Carol & Warner Henry, a Friend of LACO and the Ronus Foundation. Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO), proclaimed "America's finest chamber orchestra" by Public Radio International, has established itself among the world's top musical ensembles. Since 1997, LACO has performed under the baton of acclaimed conductor and pianist Jeffrey Kahane, hailed by critics as "visionary" and a conductor with "effortless musicality and extraordinary communicative gifts." Under Kahane's leadership, the Orchestra maintains its status as a preeminent interpreter of historical masterworks and a champion of contemporary composers. Tickets, starting at $58, are available online at laco.org, or by calling LACO at 213 622 7001. Single tickets can also be purchased at the venue box office on the night of the concert, if tickets remain. Discounted tickets are available by phone for groups of 12 or more. College students may purchase student rush tickets ($12), based on availability, at the box office an hour before the concert. Also available for college students is the $30 "Campus to Concert Hall All Access Pass" - good for all eight of LACO's Orchestral concerts, five Baroque Conversations and three Westside Connections series concerts.

The Fab Faux to Return to the State Theatre on Saturday 3/11
by BWW News Desk - Feb 10, 2017

The most musically satisfying Beatles tribute band and State Theatre audience favorite returns performing a hodgepodge of Beatles' hits! With a commitment to the accurate reproduction of The Beatles' repertoire, The Fab Faux treat the seminal music with unwavering respect, and are known for their painstaking recreations of the songs (with emphasis on the later works never performed live by the Beatles).  Far beyond a cover band, they play the music of The Beatles so impeccably that one must experience it to believe it. Imagine hearing complex material like 'Strawberry Fields Forever' or 'I Am the Walrus' performed in complete part-perfect renditions; or such harmony-driven songs as 'Because', 'Nowhere Man', and 'Paperback Writer', reproduced not only note- for-note, but with extra vocalists to achieve a double-tracked effect.  (more...)
