Led by conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen, the LA Phil opens the Philharmonic Society's 2019-20 season performing works by Salonen and Bartók, joined by violinist Daniel Lozakovich for Tchaikovsky’s irresistible Violin Concerto.

Recently announced as San Francisco Symphony's next music director (effective September 2020), Finnish conductor and composer Esa-Pekka Salonen also serves as Conductor Laureate for the Los Angeles Philharmonic, where he was Music Director from 1992 until 2009. Named "Musician of the Year" in 2006 by Musical America, Esa-Pekka Salonen is the recipient of many major awards, including the UNESCO Rostrum Prize, the Siena Prize, the Nemmers Composition Prize, and the Royal Philharmonic Society's Conductor Award, among others.

Daniel Lozakovich made his concerto debut with the Moscow Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra and has already performed as a soloist throughout Europe with orchestras including the Orchestre National de France, the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, Vienna Chamber Orchestra, Tchaikovsky Symphony, and Moscow Philharmonic, among others. Lozakovich has a close collaboration with Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra, and is a regular performer at the Verbier Festival and many other international music festivals. Lozakovich has been the recipient of numerous international accolades including first prize at the 2016 Valdimir Spivakov International Violin Competition; both the first prize and the “Grand Prix” at the 2012 EMCY International music competition; second prize at the “Yehudi Menuhin International Competition for Young Violinists” – just to name a few.

Founded in 1919, the Los Angeles Philharmonic is recognized as one of the leading orchestras in the world. Annually performing and presenting hundreds of concerts throughout the year at two outstanding venues—the Walt Disney Concert Hall and the legendary Hollywood Bowl—the Los Angeles Philharmonic demonstrates a breadth and depth of programming unrivaled by other orchestras and cultural institutions, performing music that retains the continuity of tradition while enhancing the symphonic music experience for new audiences. Under the leadership of Music Director Gustavo Dudamel, the Philharmonic is a pioneer in innovative programming and seeks new ways to enhance the symphonic music experience.
