Iannis Xenakis’ game theory becomes a primal dance evoking ancient Greece for the 28-year old Ukrainian virtuoso violinist Orest Smovzh, and pianist Mellan. The string Trio Ukiyo, making its professional debut, infuses Ancient Roman sites with speculative wonder in The Companion Guide to Rome by Andrew Norman. Le Théatre du Soliel, a short cantata based on Ovid’s F, will be sung by soprano Suzanne Waters and mezzo-soprano Katarzyna Sadej with flute, viola, double bass, and two percussionists conducted by Mark Alan Hilt. Having made his LA Phil Green Umbrella debut earlier in the week, David Bloom will conduct The Bakkhai by Dylan Mattingly. Jacaranda revisits this acclaimed work originally presented at Disney Hall in Noon to Midnight by the same ensemble in 2017. Expanding from the three choruses presented before, all seven choral settings of texts by Euripides for three sopranos, baritone, two oboes, cello, double bass and two percussionists closes the program.
