Grand Hope Crossing

Walt Disney Concert Hall, April 18, 2004, USC Thornton Symphony, Sergiu Comissiona, conductor

Los Angeles Times, April 20, 2004, Daniel Cariaga

Lesemann's new piece uses the orchestra's lavish resources generously and builds to an exciting, naturally accumulative climax. Comissiona and his charges gave it careful treatment, if with a lower energy level than might have been expected.
