About this Performance
The culmination of Dudamel’s unique look at Ives and Dvořák shows the individualistic American expanding his harmonic and rhythmic language even further in the stunningly complex Fourth Symphony. Dvořák’s final symphony was composed from Native-American and African-American source materials, from which he drew unforgettable melodies and dramatic harmonies that gelled into his most popular creation.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.
