Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 5905 Wilshire Blvd., 5905 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, California
James Conlon, whose groundbreaking “Recovered Voices” project at Los Angeles Opera has introduced Los Angeles audiences to the music of composers who, like so many of their fellow visual artists, were forced to flee Germany in the 1930s, will speak about how the philosophies that infused New Objectivity in art were also embodied in the music of the time.
James Conlon is Music Director of Los Angeles Opera, Ravinia Festival (summer home of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra), and Cincinnati May Festival. He has conducted more than 260 performances at the Metropolitan Opera since his first appearance there in 1976, and has conducted virtually every major American and European symphony orchestra. For his work championing the lesser-known works of composers silenced by the Nazi regime, he received the Crystal Globe Award from the Anti-Defamation League.
