Salonen leads Ravel, Sibelius - & Salonen

Join us Thursday at 7PM as Esa-Pekka Salonen - the Finn who resigned as conductor of the LA Philharmonic so he could get back to composing - leads the New York Philharmonic in Ravel's Mother Goose, the Sibelius Fifth Symphony, and Salonen's own Violin Concerto. The soloist is MacArthur "genius" Leila Josefowicz, who premiered the work in LA. The Sibelius, said the New York Times, was "revelatory" and the Salonen? It was "inspired." Hear it for yourself!

Finnish composer/ conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen.
