John Williams Celebration

About the Gala Concert

Launching the 2022/23 season with the LA Phil’s Annual Gala Concert, Gustavo Dudamel shared the podium with his close friend and inspiration John Williams in a night celebrating the legendary composer’s 90th birthday. Joined by acclaimed violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter, Williams opened the evening conducting his Second Violin Concerto, a piece he wrote for Mutter that they premiered last year. In the second half, Dudamel led selections from Williams’ beloved film scores.
