Program notes

Finnish conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen rehearses Debussy's La Mer with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra.

With a highly acclaimed performance of Mahler's Third Symphony Finnish conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen acquired worldwide fame at the tender age of 25. Within the following years he not only became the musical head of several festivals, but also guest-conductor of the Philharmonia Orchestra London and chief-conductor of the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra. Salonen's appointment as musical director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic in the year 1992 is definitely one of the highlights in the career of this amazing musician. Together with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the ambitious Finn realised many great concerts and released some fabulous recordings, mostly with 20th century music repertoire.
