About This Performance
The concerts of Gustavo Dudamel and Lang Lang are veritable summit sessions in musical charisma. Here they meet for Prokofiev’s irresistibly propulsive yet radiantly lyrical Third Piano Concerto – “the invincible Scythian strikes the tambourine of the sun,” as the symbolist poet Konstantin Balmont hailed Prokofiev after the composer introduced him to the Concerto the summer he wrote it.
Dudamel conducts music by Venezuelan-born cellist/composer Paul Desenne, whose piece is propelled by Latin American rhythms with moments of passion and humor.
