About This Performance

Dudamel is renowned for his Mahler interpretations, but neither he nor anyone else has performed the monumental “Symphony of a Thousand” inside Walt Disney Concert Hall. Just imagine the huge orchestra, pipe organ and massed choirs in the explosive opening movement, “Come, Creator Spirit.”
