About this Performance
The thrilling way Beethoven treats different dance rhythms in his Seventh Symphony made it a hit from the start, and Dudamel is the perfect interpreter to bring out its vibrant and whirling character. Gustavo also leads Gabriella Smith’s brand-new Lost Coast, a cello concerto played by Gabriel Cabezas. For Thursday and Saturday night audiences, Lost Coast is paired with Ellen Reid’s West Coast Sky Eternal, another world premiere.See other concerts in this series
