April 24: The Colburn Youth Orchestra, Maxim Eshkenazy, Conductor

The Colburn Youth Orchestra with conductor Maxim Eshkenazy performs the final movement of Lalo’s Cello Concerto and Dvorak’s complete Symphony No. 9 “New World.”

Conductor Maxim Eshkenazy, who the Los Angeles Times has hailed as “charismatic and exciting,” leads the Colburn Youth Orchestra. The 70-member Colburn Youth Orchestra consists of woodwinds, pairs of horns and trumpets, percussion, and strings. Comprising students age 13 and above, the orchestra performs classic symphonic literature as well as newly commissioned works.

Conductor Maxim Eshkenazy was recently promoted to associate conductor of the Pacific Symphony, and also holds posts as music director of the Bakerfield Youth Orchestra and at the Colburn School in Los Angeles, where he leads both the Chamber and Youth Orchestras. He regularly guest conducts Bulgaria’s major orchestras, including the Sofia Philharmonic. Committed to the promotion of new music, Eshkenazy frequently programs and performs the music of contemporary composers.
