LA Master Chorale Presents Bruckner's Mass in E minor

Sunday, February 12, 2012, 7 pm, at Walt Disney Concert Hall

Music Director Grant Gershon Conducts Brucker’s Mass in E minor
and Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms


Los Angeles Master Chorale continues the season with Bruckner’s
full-scale choral masterpiece Mass in E minor on Sunday, February 12,
2012, 7 pm, at Walt Disney Concert Hall. The concert marks the first
time any of Bruckner’s major choral works have been performed in Disney
Hall. To complement the expressive and poignant masterwork, Music
Director Grant Gershon also conducts Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms, a
contrasting but equally compelling piece filled with both ritual and
fireworks, and Brucker’s motet Os Justi.

Bruckner, born to Austrian peasants and a musical protégé from an early
age, completed the Mass in E minor for eight-part chorus and wind
orchestra in 1866. It is a work that illustrates more than any of his
others the composer’s unique style – a mix of romantic fully Brucknerian
harmony with blending and contrasting vocal and instrumental textures,
and the restrained and austere power of Renaissance polyphony.

“It is one of my favorite Bruckner pieces and is such an important part
of the choral literature,” Gershon says. “I’m very pleased to be the
first person to conduct this seminal work in Disney Hall.”

Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms was commissioned by the Boston Symphony
on the occasion of its 50th Anniversary in 1930. The composer eschewed
the traditional 19th Century symphonic structure common at the time,
using as the root of the piece a pair of interlocked thirds that forms
the base of an opening chord so unusual and striking that it is
recognizable from the first sound. The work, whose mighty choruses and
stunning softness create a cathedral of sound, “celebrates that most
ancient form of communal music making -- one with a healing, even
redemptive overtone” (Los Angeles Times). Esa-Pekka Salonen tapped the
Los Angeles Master Chorale to perform Symphony of Psalms with the LA
Philharmonic for his emotional farewell program in April 2009 to
conclude his 17-year tenure with the orchestra, the longest of any music
director in the organization’s history.

Tickets range from $19 - $134. Group rates are available. For tickets
