EVENT INFORMATION

Acclaimed harpsichordist Jeannette Sorrell, founder and music director of Cleveland’s Apollo’s Fire makes her Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra debut when she conducts concertos by Vivaldi, Bach and Boccherini at LACO's “Baroque Conversations” series on Thursday, February 6, 2014, 7 pm, at Zipper Hall in downtown Los Angeles. Sorrell, who “forges a vibrant, life-affirming approach to the re-making of early music,” according to BBC Music Magazine, leads Principal Cello Andrew Shulman, Cello Trevor Handy, Principal Violin II Josefina Vergara and Flute Sandy Hughes in Vivaldi's Concerto grosso in B minor (arr. Sorrell) after Sonata in B minor, Op. 1, No. 12, RV 63 (“La Follia”), and Concerto in G minor for Two Cellos, RV 531; Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 in D major, BWV 1050; and Boccherini’s “Fandango” (arr. Sorrell) after Guitar Quintet No. 4 in D major, G. 448.

LACO's highly regarded "Baroque Conversations," now it its eighth year, explores the genesis of orchestral repertoire from early Baroque schools through the pre-classical period. This year the series spotlights how Baroque composers transformed a simple theme or melody into grand, complex and intricate variations and great music. In signature LACO style, each concert host shares insights into the music and invites questions from the audience, providing an in-depth look at the music being presented as well as an opportunity to get to know LACO artists on a more personal level. A complimentary wine reception for all ticket holders begins at 6 pm.

Three additional "Baroque Conversations" concerts take place on March 27, April 17 and May 1, 2014.

Tickets for individual concerts (beginning at $55) are available online at laco.org, by calling LACO at 213 622 7001, or at the venue box office on the night of the concert, if tickets remain. Student rush tickets ($10), based on availability, may be purchased at the box office one hour before the concert.
