An article from November regarding the Monday night concert series in Los Angeles. If you were to curate a new music series in LA which composers would you program? This articles chronicles the history of the new music series that featured twelve premieres by Igor Stravinsky during the time Stravinsky lived in California. A series that gave Michael Tilson Thomas his forum to play piano before his rise as a conductor. The 2006-2007 season will be curated by Steven Stucky, Kent Nagano and Esa-Pekka Salonen.
