As winter drags on in the North, many of us head to Mexico and the Caribbean for some time in the sun by the sea. If you haven't been able to head out yet this season, this concert may just bring you there.
This week's concert is a great study in contrasts. Standing next to each other are some of the most dreamy orchestral pieces; beautiful washes of sound broken up by arguably the most primal piece of them all.
Taking a break from our non-winter, we're in the City of Angels this week with a sunny performance featuring the LA Philharmonic and their Conductor Laureate, Esa-Pekka Salonen.
This week's show features a musician who takes his instrument to a magical and seductive level: oboist Albrecht Mayer.
