Notes and Editorial Reviews
This "In Rehearsal" program was recorded with Esa-Pekka Salonen in Los Angeles. He is featured rehearsing Debussy's Impressionistic orchestral piece La Mer with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion of the Music Center of Los Angeles County.
The eminent Finnish composer and conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen has been the Los Angeles Philharmonic's Music Director since 1992. Under his dynamic leadership it is recognized as one of the world's most outstanding orchestras, and the exciting musical partnership Salonen has established with his musicians has been widely acclaimed in the international press.
The conductor's lucidity, efficiency and lack of pretension have promoted a relaxed
co-operation between himself and the orchestra which is particularly evident in the rehearsal process.
This program gives a fascinating insight into Esa-Pekka Salonen's rapport with his musicians and also into Debussy's masterpiece.
Filmed at his L.A. home, Esa-Pekka Salonen talks about Debussy and the challenge his composition presents.
