Europe has held a near-monopoly on the longtime centers of western classical music. But far away, across the sea, Los Angeles has made a name for itself as a city with a model symphony. So says conductor Sir Simon Rattle. He’s our guest on the Arts Alive podcast. And Gael Garcia Bernal isn’t a conductor, but he does play one on TV. Now on the big screen, he’s playing a fictional man trying to track down one of the world’s most famous poets. Bernal on Neruda, plus Kenneth Turan’s favorite movies of 2016 and an icey Ask the Dean. It’s all on the Arts Alive podcast.
From the Central Coast to San Diego, from Santa Monica to Palm Springs, there are fascinating people creating incredible art and performances. KUSC will be covering those experiences on Arts Alive. And when you’re in the mood for a little more, like a longer version of an interview, more Arts Alive coverage is available online at kusc.org/artsalive.
