Dudamel Conducts Mozart and Mendelssohn

Walt Disney Concert Hall

About This Performance

Mendelssohn’s “Reformation” Symphony – actually the second symphony he wrote for full orchestra, but the last published, takes its name from the use of Martin Luther’s chorale “A Mighty Fortress” in its last movement; he composed the work after the 300th anniversary of the tune. Dudamel bookends it with a Bach cantata, a classic musical inheritance of the Reformation.

Come for:

Gustavo Dudamel conducting Mendelssohn at his fiercest.

And more:

The LA Phil’s Principal Concertmaster plays Mozart’s ebullient G-major Violin Concerto, as a preface to the second installment of the Mozart/Da Ponte Trilogy, The Marriage of Figaro.
