Bienvenido Gustavo (Again) and the new Hollywood Bowl season
Here is an excerpt from Dudamel's inaugural concert at the Disney Hall, conducting Mahler's First. Due to popular demand, the LA Phil is performing one more concert this year with Dudamel. The program is a repeat of his inaugural concert (the Walt Disney Concert Hall debut, not the Hollywood Bowl debut) and will include John Adam's "City Noir" and Mahler's Symphony No. 1 (the "Titan"). Tickets will go on sale to the general public on February 6th but if you're on the mailing list, you can get access to the pre-sale tickets. You can join the mailing list here. The concert is set for April 25th at 7:30 PM and if you can't make it, you can always buy the DVD.
