Classical Highlights for June 2023


Epic listening is what you get with this month’s evaluations, in a couple of sense. Thomas Adès has written a ballet that covers your entire three books of Dante’s Divine Comedy. A latest recording by Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic offers us the no-less-impressive live performance model. Messiaen was impressed by the actually superior pure magnificence and views of Utah to put in writing Des canyons aux étoiles (From the Canyons to the Stars), newly carried out by the Utah Symphony Orchestra beneath Thierry Fischer. And if solely all of us had the power of Garrick Ohlsson (pictured), who, with conductor Donald Runnicles, carried out the heroic feat of enjoying all of Beethoven’s piano concertos over the course of 1 week. That’s only a style of the newest notable choices.
