Think of Hollywood Bowl as a musical bazaar, where virtuoso soloists and ensembles display their wares nightly over the summer season. As such, the mammoth amphitheater has drawn and entertained generations of listeners over nine decades. And some of these listeners follow the musical path to more substantial winter concerts, indoors. The tradition continues. Thursday night, it thrived again when Rafael Fruhbeck de Burgos led a showy and satisfying two-part program in the Bowl.

With a touch of enterprise, Jeffrey Kahane threw some offbeat Bartok and Kodaly at us Friday night at Royce Hall. And from just the examples of Bartok's spiky, driving Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion and Kodaly's bucolic, early chamber orchestra work "Summer Evening," you would scarcely guess that the two composers came from the same country (Hungary), let alone that they were close colleagues.

Instrumental virtuosity, of both solo and ensemble kinds, was very much in evidence Saturday at Terrace Theater, as JoAnn Falletta and the Long Beach Symphony Orchestra closed their eighth season together. And beneath the dazzle, Falletta's challenging, cohesive program offered pointed lessons in the multifarious uses of rhythm. In the grammar of Rachmaninoff's "Symphonic Dances," rhythm is both subject and object, and Falletta underlined all the nouns in her powerful parsing of the piece.

Andre Previn was busy making amiable introductions Thursday when he rejoined the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion for a two-program stint marking his final Music Center appearances of the season. First came a posthumous one, the orchestra's premiere performance of the late Roger Sessions' Second Symphony, composed in 1946. Next came an early one, the unheralded local debut of pianist Jon Kimura Parker, who stepped in for an indisposed Horacio Gutierrez.

Six young American composers will gather this week at the 15-acre, Paolo Soleri-designed Arcosanti environment in central Arizona to hear and rework their own compositions. Under the mentorship of veteran composer Terry Riley, the emerging composers--from Arizona, California and New Jersey--will hear their own chamber music rehearsed by members of the California E.A.R. Unit Monday through Saturday, with a final concert performance of the new works on Saturday.

You can't seemingly find a more insider composer than David Del Tredici, whose “Bullycide” was commissioned by La Jolla Music Society's SummerFest and will have its premiere Friday night in Sherwood Auditorium of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. He's won a Pulitzer Prize and been composer-in-residence of the New York Philharmonic. He's on the faculty of City College of New York and is a member of the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. He has been, in his music, obsessed with “Alice in Wonderland.” “Paul Revere” has been a subject of interest.
