Another classic concert this week. This time it’s The Los Angeles Philharmonic, conducted by Music Director Carlo Maria Giulini and featuring the legendary Pianist Radu Lupu in the Schumann Piano Concerto.
Only two works featured on this concert – The Schumann piano concerto (on the first part and on the top player), and the Bruckner Symphony Number 9 (on the second part and on the bottom player).
The Guilini tenure with the orchestra was a memorable one and was thoroughly enjoyed by the orchestra as well as the audience. Primarily a meat-and-potatoes conductor whose repertoire was heavily steeped in the classics, he brought a level of intensified playing that took an already world-class orchestra up a few notches.
And here’s a reminder of what it was like when Carlo Maria Giulini was wandering the halls of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.
