There is not much uplift, though, in the Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho’s wrenching and gravely beautiful “Passion de Simone,”Wonderful, I hate uplift.“La Passion de Simone” may be the most despairing of the three. It is unremittingly bleakPerfect.I can't wait for this at Disney Hall in January, though until Mr. Salonen raises his baton will I believe it's going to happen: it's been postponed twice already.BTW Lisa, single tickets for the Los Angeles Philharmonic go on sale next Sunday.
Since Upshaw is healthy, there's a staging, and it's been performed in NYC, I believe it'll happen!
