Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra
Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Music inspired by exotic locations and an unconventional concerto are featured in the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra’s debut Carnegie Hall concert. Philip Glass’s Days and Nights in Rocinha is an evocative tribute to the largest favela in Brazil, while La noche de los Mayas—a suite drawn from a score Revueltas composed to a film that is now lost—is inspired by Mayan culture, culminating in a blaze of pulsing rhythms and wild percussion. There are more fireworks in Glass’s Concerto Fantasy for Two Timpanists and Orchestra, a thrilling showcase requiring Olympian virtuosity from the two soloists who play nine timpani between them.
