Conductors announced in place of the late Bramwell Tovey include Ludovic Morlot at the “Tchaikovsky Spectacular with Fireworks” and Louis Langrée at “An Evening of Rachmaninoff” performances with the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
Joshua Bell will headline the “Tchaikovsky Spectacular with Fireworks,” lending his star power to Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto, with Morlot leading the orchestra. The Ukrainian National Anthem will be performed, as Tovey intended, as well as his composition “Urban Runway” (LA Phil commission). The excitement continues with the University of Southern California Trojan Marching Band joining the LA Phil for the traditional finale, “1812 Overture,” accompanied by matching pyrotechnics. The show starts at 8 p.m. on Aug. 12-13. For tickets, visit hollywoodbowl.com/ events/performances/1738/2022-08-12/tchaikovsky-spectacular-with-fireworks.
