When Jeffrey Kahane was called away at the last minute from this concert, the scramble was on to find a fabulous pianist who could also conduct from the keyboard — as Kahane was slated to do in Beethoven's Third Piano Concerto. The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra found just the ticket in the amazing Shai Wosner.
