Dvořák & Bartók

Sat / Nov 9, 2024 - 8:00PM

A double debut and the drama and delight of Eastern Europe.

About this Performance

While composing his austere Seventh Symphony, Dvořák said he hoped it would “make a stir in the world.” And that, it did—becoming a critically acclaimed work among Romantic symphonies for its rumbling percussion and warm, lyrical spirit.

Lorenzo Viotti—known for his deep musical interpretations and work inviting new audiences to concert halls in the digital age—makes his first appearance with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, leading two more rhapsodic pieces steeped in Hungarian, Czech, and Slovakian folk traditions. He guides Kodaly’s passionate Dances of Galánta before Marc Bouchkov—also making his Walt Disney Concert Hall debut—steps in to tackle each trill, scale, and double stop of Bartók’s Second Violin Concerto with precision and speed.
