OBITUARIES

The prodigal son returns.

After a 19-month absence, Esa-Pekka Salonen had an exceptional homecoming in November. His first appearances as the Los Angeles Philharmonic's conductor laureate were titillating (Magnus Lindberg's "Graffiti"), shocking (Bartók's "Bluebeard's Castle"), revelatory (Hindemith's Symphonic Metamorphosis) and exhilarating (Wagner with and without baritone Bryn Terfel).
