I figured I'd make a new thread as I don't have any classical music pics to post. Actually that's not true. I could post a grainy photo of the von Dohnanyi conducting the London Phil at Royal Albert Hall. But that's as far as I could go.
And then hitting ones I personally love (often more than the above) Shostakovich, Sibelius, Mahler, Bruckner and then we start to get to Martinu, Vaughan Williams, Schoenberg and Barber and we gotta stop somewhere so yeah.
Glancing over the upcoming schedule for the Bowl one that sticks out is September 4th where Salonen is conducting LAP in one of his own pieces and then Mahler's 1st symphony. Composers aren't always the best interpreters of their own work but Foreign Bodies is only 6 years old so we're not going to have any perspective on it anyway.
Then two days later their doing Mussorgsky's Boris Gudnov... a fantastic 19th century Russian opera. Opera's really an entirely different animal but I'd want to see this.
Oh wow. It looks like Salonen is conducting a Sibelius symphony cycle in October. And Mehta's conducting some Webern. Yummy.
OK, I'm gonna stop looking at this because fucking hell. SO much good stuff. Salonen is conducting a Bruckner 6th that if I caught some of his Sibelius, etc it could make me think hard about missing a day of Coachella.
