Ludo’s Farewell: A Symphonic Opera in 3 Acts
Thursday, May 16
For his last concerts with the Seattle Symphony after 8 years as music director, Ludovic Morlot envisions the evening as his own 3 act opera on the theme of love. The final program of Wagner, Debussy and Janacek was chosen not only to honor the orchestra and community that Ludo loves, but the composers for whom he has such a great affinity, and as a celebration of his penchant for creative and unpredictable programming. Ludovic Morlot looks back with Classical KING FM’s Dave Beck on an era in Seattle Symphony history that has resulted in nearly 60 world premiere performances, 19 recordings and 5 Grammy Awards among many other achievements.
