Dudamel Explores Dvořák & Ives

On paper, Antonín Dvorák and Charles Ives couldn’t be more different. An immigrant with perspective on the melting pot and a radical homegrown maverick – each represents a part of the larger American story, and both composers drew on that experience in trying to define what makes American music American. Experience all four symphonies by Ives, in league with Dvořák’s masterful final three symphonies in this 2019/20 festival led by Dudamel with the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
