Video: Gustavo on Bernstein and Beethoven

As long as we're sharing videos related to the two programs that the LA Phil is taking on tour, we thought we'd include this one, filmed during our latest TalkBack -- our post-concert discussions that feature the conductor for that evening's program, members of the LA Phil, guest artists and a moderator (usually a music educator or musician). And, as you can see, a certain Music Director sometimes sticks around after the concert to take some questions from the audience.

That's moderator Chris Russell on the left, LA Phil Music Director Gustavo Dudamel next to him, LA Phil English horn player Carolyn Hove next to him and mezzo-soprano Kelley O'Connor on the right. The orchestra will be playing the Adams/Bernstein/Beethoven program in every city on the 2011 European Tour (except for Madrid), so if you're planning to attend, take a few minutes to learn why Gustavo and the others feel so strongly about these works.

Stay tuned for updates from LA Phil musicians and staff as they play this piece in some of the most famous concert halls in Europe!
