Dudamel Leads Khachaturian

Sun / Nov 5, 2023 - 2:00PM

Gustavo and Jean-Yves Thibaudet come together for a program featuring Khachaturian’s Armenian folk-infused musical world.

About this Performance

Armenian composer Aram Khachaturian crafted his music with strong melodies, rich orchestration, and striking rhythms that bring to mind Rimsky-Korsakov or Mussorgsky. Gustavo Dudamel leads an exploration of Khachaturian’s distinct voice first with a suite from his ballet Spartacus—featuring the stirring Adagio—followed by the intense and heroic Piano Concerto with the help of Jean-Yves Thibaudet. After the U.S. premiere of Thomas Adès’ fanfare honoring Frank Gehry, Dudamel conducts Janáček’s lyrical and intense Sinfonietta.

This performance is generously supported by the Frank Gehry Fund for Creativity.
