    LOS ANGELES (September 23, 2022) – This season, the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s 2022/23 Colburn Celebrity Recital series at Walt Disney Concert Hall presents 10 one-night-only performances from world class instrumental virtuosi to stellar operatic voices, from across the globe.

    The 2022/23 Colburn Celebrity Recital series begins with a piano recital by Sir András Schiff on Tuesday, October 11, 2022, at 8 pm, followed by an evening featuring soprano Renée Fleming and pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet together in a collaborative recital, on Sunday, October 16, 2022, at 7:30 pm. Then, on Tuesday, November 15, 2022, at 8 pm, the world premiere of an immersive, multimedia staged journey, Electric Fields, with live, interactive projection, costumes and lights. Electric Fields’ music is by Hildegard von Bingen, Barbara Strozzi and Francesca Caccini, reimagined by David Chalmin and Bryce Dessner (of The National), alongside new works by Chalmin and Dessner, performed by pianists Katia and Marielle Labèque and soprano Barbara Hannigan, and directed and designed by Netia Jones.
