    Program, Featuring Video from Refik Anadol and Led by Esa-Pekka Salonen, Takes Place as Scheduled

    November 6, 7, and 9, 2014

    The Los Angeles Philharmonic’s multimedia presentation of Edgard Varèse’s Amériques, will replace the previously announced presentation of Berlioz’ Romeo & Juliet at Walt Disney Concert Hall, November 6, 7 and 9. The Berlioz presentation was to have featured a newly-commissioned video by Refik Anadol to accompany a complete performance led by LA Phil Conductor Laureate Esa-Pekka Salonen, however, technical elements relating to the production have required its postponement. Varèse’s Amériques, conducted by Salonen, will feature a new video created by Anadol for the piece. The new program explores the works of European composers, such as Igor Stravinsky and Edgard Varèse, who emigrated to the U.S. during the turbulent years of the early 20th century, and how their “new world” inspired them.  

    Single tickets for the LA Phil’s 2014/15 season are available starting August 24.
