Georg Friedrich Haas in LA

Reading time: 1 min. Otto Tausk LA Phil Georg Friedrich Haas

The US premiere of Georg Friedrich Haas’ chants oubliés for chamber orchestra takes place tonight in Los Angeles.

Otto Tausk conducts the LA Phil New Music Group at the Walt Disney Concert Hall.

The title refers to late works by Franz Liszt (Valses oubliés, Romance oubliée) – Liszt’s technique of presenting one-part melodies in a different sound environment (often that of the piano) is applied here to the possibilities of the chamber orchestra.
