“A brilliant musician and an extraordinary visionary” (Wall Street Journal), Pierre-Laurent Aimard has built his reputation as a go-to of contemporary music and collaborator for composers but is celebrated for his interpretation of historic repertoire as well. Aimard joins the LA Phil for Beethoven’s wonder-filled Fourth Piano Concerto, with the unusual quiet drama of its second movement. Eva Ollikainen is the chief conductor of several orchestras in Europe and leads the U.S. premiere of ARCHORA by Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdóttir, “one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary music” (NPR), and the gorgeous Suite from Richard Strauss’ Der Rosenkavalier.
