On April 19, Esa-Pekka Salonen will conduct his final concert as the music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, bringing to a close one of the most significant relationships in recent orchestral history. KUSC, the LA classical station, will provide comprehensive coverage. This Sunday at 4PM the station offers a two-hour documentary about the EPS era; it will be streamed live on the KUSC website. An April 11 concert, with Salonen's new Violin Concerto, and the grand finale, with Stravinsky's Oedipus Rex and Symphony of Psalms, will also be broadcast live. Deutsche Grammophon is marking the occasion with a new album, Salonen, containing his Piano Concerto, Helix, and Dichotomie. You can listen to excerpts on DG's e-player. There's also the Celebrate Salonen page at the LA Phil website. If that's not enough, Salonen makes his motion-picture debut in The Soloist, opening April 24. He plays the Conductor.
Update: The KUSC documentary is now available on demand.
