Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO) trips the light fantastic at the season’s second “Baroque Conversations” concert, which explores the art of Baroque dance, its links to the court of Louis XIV and its intriguing social and political implications, on Thursday, February 16, 7 pm, at Zipper Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles. LACO Principal Keyboard Patricia Mabee, who celebrates 35 years with LACO this season, hosts the evening, featuring renowned baroque guitar John Schneiderman and Baroque dancers/historians Linda Tomko and Jill Chardoff. Also featured are LACO principals Tereza Stanislav, assistant concertmaster; Sarah Thornblade, associate principal violin II; Roland Kato, principal viola; Victoria Miskolczy, associate principal viola; and Armen Ksajikian, associate principal cello. In signature LACO style, the artists share their insights into the music and dances from the stage and invite questions from the audience about the program, which includes Vivaldi’s Trio Sonata in D minor, RV 63, Op. 1, No. 12, “La folia” (“Madness”); Sanz’s Pavanas and Canarios from Instrucción de Musica Sobre la Guitarra Española; Ganspeck’s Overture in A major for Viola d’Amore and Violin; Soler’s Fandango in D minor, S. 146; and selections from Campra’s Les fêtes vénitiennes (“The Venetian Festivals”) and L’Europe galante (“Galant Europe”), as well as from Lully’s Atys and Rameau’s Dardanus. A pre-concert reception, beginning at 6 pm, is free to all ticket holders.

LACO’s “Baroque Conversations” series explores the genesis of orchestral repertoire from early Baroque schools through the pre-classical period.

Tickets ($50) are on sale now and may be purchased online at laco.org, by calling LACO at 213 622 7001, or at the venue box office on the night of the concert, if tickets remain. Student rush tickets ($10), based on availability, may be purchased at the box office the day of the concert.

Antonio Lysy – Cellist
Cellist Antonio Lysy has performed as soloist worldwide, in major concert halls, appearing with orchestras such as the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra of London, Camerata Academica of Salzburg, Zurich Tonhalle, Israel Sinfonietta, or the Montreal Symphony Orchestra among others. He has collaborated with distinguished international conductors and has recorded extensively for European and American radio networks and labels.

Antonio plays on a Carlo Tononi cello made in Bologna, in 1700. As one of California’s most prominent cellists he is frequently invited as guest artist to distinguished series. His love and commitment to chamber music is also demonstrated by his musical directorship and founding of the annual Incontri in Terra di Siena Chamber Music Festival in Tuscany, Italy, now in its twenty-second season.

Antonio enjoys exploring the versatility of the cello’s voice from baroque to electric and has collaborated in performances of concert Tango, dramatized recitals and multi-media productions. A new album dedicated to cello works from Argentina, including a new work written for him by Lalo Schifrin, was released this year on Yarlung Records.

Antonio teaches at the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA).
