About This Performance

Gustavo Dudamel and LA Phil Conductor Laureate Esa-Pekka Salonen are quite different musicians, but that they also share much common ground, and this program finds Dudamel exploring typically Salonen turf. The Rite of Spring became a signature piece for the LA Phil under Salonen, and Steven Stucky was associated with the orchestra for all of Salonen’s tenure as its Music Director; they gave the world premiere of his Pulitzer Prize-winning Concerto for Orchestra No. 2 in 2004.

Come for:

Gustavo Dudamel’s first Rite of Spring with the LA Phil, and his first Stucky premiere.

And more:

Showpieces from three masters of orchestral color, delivered by a master of orchestral interpretation.

Programs, artists, dates, prices and availability subject to change.
