Esa-Pekka Salonen, new media icon

In October, I was in Los Angeles to hear Esa-Pekka Salonen conduct his Violin Concerto, written for Leila Josefewicz and the Los Angeles Philharmonic and premiered by both in 2009. Imagine my pleasant surprise when a new Apple ad featuring Salonen hit the airwaves.

My favorite writer on music, Alex Ross, writes about it here.  Enjoy!
