The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, led by Music Director Jeffrey Kahane, presents the highly anticipated U.S. premiere of the orchestral version of Bruce Adolphe’s Do You Dream in Color?, a powerful work set to a poem about living without sight written by rising mezzo-soprano Laurie Rubin. Born blind, Rubin, a 1997 Music Center Spotlight Awards winner, joins LACO for the premiere, marking her LACO debut, on Saturday, October 19, 8 pm, at Pasadena’s Ambassador Auditorium, and Sunday, October 20, 7 pm, at UCLA’s Royce Hall. French cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras, who wowed audiences and critics alike at USC’s 2012 Piatigorsky International Cello Festival, makes his LACO debut in Haydn’s exceptionally demanding Cello Concerto in C major, believed lost until discovered in Prague in 1961. Kahane also conducts Mozart’s light-hearted Serenata Notturna, K. 239, and opens the program with Britten’s Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge.
