About this Performance
Dudamel’s unexpected pairing of symphonies by Ives and Dvořák reaches the next level with Ives quoting popular and patriotic American songs through his early 20th-century prism, while Dvořák displays his genius for transforming the essence of Czech folk music into vital, melody-rich creations.See other concerts in this series

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.
