THE CONCERTS:
Rachmaninoff Cycle with Yuja Wang

5 PROGRAMS • FEB 9-19

Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Phil are joined by the renowned Yuja Wang in a cycle of perhaps the most beloved piano showpieces ever written.

“Listening to his music, it’s just the most sensuous and passionate thing. I don’t know where he got it,” Wang has said of Rachmaninoff.

“Every time I play his music, it’s a gift.”

Across two weekends, Wang and the LA Phil will perform all four of Rachmaninoff’s lush and virtuosic piano concertos as well as the enthralling Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, and Dudamel will conduct other major works by the composer.

Rachmaninoff Was Here Map


 

When Rachmaninoff and his family took up residence in Beverly Hills in 1942, he entered a creative community of musicians, authors, and filmmakers – many of whom were émigrés, having fled Europe at the start of the Second World War. It was a time of incredible artistic and intellectual activity nurtured by the salons and private performances taking place in Beverly Hills’ homes, gardens, and estates, including Rachmaninoff’s own.
