On July 7, Lionel Bringuier will open the 2015 Hollywood Bowl’s classical season with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, where the French conductor served as Assistant Conductor and later Resident Conductor under Music Directors Esa-Pekka Salonen and Gustavo Dudamel.
Lionel’s return to the LA Phil will be marked with a festive program featuring Borodin’s Polovtsian Dances from Prince Igor, Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 2 with frequent artistic collaborator Yuja Wang, Debussy’s La mer, and Ravel’s Boléro. The program concludes with the Bowl’s traditional opening night fireworks.
Two days later, Lionel once again takes to the Hollywood Bowl podium on July 9 for a Shakespeare-inspired evening that begins with Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet Suite and concludes with Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet Fantasy-Overture. In between these two classic works is Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations with cellist Narek Hakhnazaryan.
