CLASSICAL SOUNDS STARTING TO SHINE IN SEASON'S HEAT.

Byline: Reed Johnson Daily News Staff Writer

Take pioneering video artist Bill Viola, pianist Alexander Toradze, the L.A. Master Chorale, the L.A. Philharmonic with Esa-Pekka Salonen conducting and music by Stravinsky, Scriabin, Ligeti and Varese, put them together at the Hollywood Bowl, and what do you get? Beats us, but we're looking forward to finding out when the Bowl presents ``Fantastic Odyssey,'' as it's billing this Aug. 24 avant-garde-ish, multimedia jam session.

Directly across the Hollywood Freeway (101), the L.A. Mozart Orchestra will perform an Aug. 14 concert version of ``The Magic Flute,'' with music director Lucinda Carver leading a cast that includes Jonathan Mack (Tamino), Camille King (Pamina) and Todd Fitzpatrick (Papageno). Mozart's fairy tale should go well with a jug of wine, a loaf of bread and the distant glow of city lights.

If wanderlust overtakes you, the Athenaeum in downtown La Jolla will be marking its 100th anniversary with pianist Gustavo Romero performing Chopin's complete solo works in six recitals between July 1 and Aug. 1. It could be the summer's most blissful soundscape, not counting the Pacific Ocean.
