In "Facing Off Across Sunset Boulevard" La Jolla Symphony & Chorus celebrate mavericks and visionaries. The concert's title refers to the giants of 20th-century music whose work bookends the program, Arnold Schoenberg and Igor Stravinsky. The two men lived scant miles apart in Los Angeles after fleeing Nazism yet never interacted, separated less by distance than by sharp differences in compositional method, aesthetic direction, and personality. Whatever their differences, their work inspired the other three composers represented on the program - Olivier Messiaen, Hannah Lash, and Toru Takemitsu - to continue their exploration of sonority, classical form, and movement. Recorded on 05/06/2018. (#33164)
