Dvořák and Ortiz with Dudamel

Thu / May 9, 2024 - 8:00PM

Stellar violinist María Dueñas returns, and Dudamel leads Dvořák’s “New World” Symphony.

About this Performance

Filled with drama, sweet longing, and unforgettable melodies evoking an American landscape seen through an immigrant’s eyes, Dvořák’s Ninth has become one of the most popular and performed symphonies. But both in recent performances and recordings, Gustavo Dudamel has been praised for “[jolting] the familiar score with vitality and imagination” (The New York Times). When Spanish violinist María Dueñas premiered the concerto Ortiz wrote for her, the Los Angeles Times wrote that “a star was born,” praising her musical depth and effortless virtuosity. Dueñas teams up with Dudamel once more for an encore performance of Ortiz’ Altar de cuerda.
