  • Horner’s ‘Pas de Deux’ gets U.S. premiere with LA Phil at Hollywood Bowl

    By Rick Schultz

    August 17, 2016 | 2:21 pm

    Brooding, elegiac, melancholic, warm and uplifting have been adjectives used to describe the late James Horner’s music. Whether he was writing for film or the concert hall, Horner’s scores always managed to move people.

    Not many people can claim the kind of Trekkie credibility that composer-conductor David Newman can. As a studio violinist, Newman played on the soundtrack of the half-century-old franchise’s first movie, 1979’s “Star Trek: The Motion Picture,” based on the popular 1960s TV series.

    When jazz saxophonist Dave Koz’s “dream” car was stolen in 1997 after he stopped for five minutes to pick up a sandwich at a restaurant in the San Fernando Valley, it was perhaps the lowest point of his life.

    Yes, his second album, “Lucky Man,” had already gone gold and, still in...

  • Pianist Inon Barnatan to bewitch audience with one of Mozart’s greatest concertos

    By Rick Schultz

    August 13, 2014 | 12:12 pm

    Soloists such as Van Cliburn and, more recently, Lang Lang, made their mark on the world’s stage at a relatively young age. But such careers often hit a plateau or, worse, suffer burnout. Other artists, like the 35-year-old Israeli-born pianist Inon Barnatan, grow more gradually....

  • ‘Fluid Infinities’ displays architecture in motion at the Hollywood Bowl

    August 28, 2013 | 12:17 pm

    If you were to assume that Jacques Heim, the bold and much-praised founder of the Diavolo Dance Theater was a choreographer, no one would blame you. Diavolo is, after all, a dance company, and Heim, a roguish Frenchman who talks quickly and passionately about his art, seems to...

  • Klezmer, classical royalty at the Bowl

    By Rick Schultz

    August 14, 2013 | 1:15 pm

    “Energy is eternal delight,” the poet William Blake said, and klezmer music proves his point. For centuries throughout Jewish Eastern Europe, rhythmically high-strung klezmer bands, which often featured a virtuoso violinist and clarinetist trading licks, were a provocation to...

    By Rick Schultz

    June 13, 2012 | 12:24 pm

    Maybe it was his heart attack during a concert in Rotterdam in 2009, or perhaps it’s just a matter of aging, but conductor Leonard Slatkin, a venerable fixture with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl for many years, is now thinking about summer as vacation time.
