At the Walt Disney Concert Hall with the current and former chief conductors Dudamel, Mehta and Salonen sharing the podium, the gala night is something to behold. The repertoire is a true reflection of the DNA that makes the LA Phil the LA Phil and “the defining factor of this orchestra is its ability to blend genres and styles to create totally new takes on classical works.” (The Guardian)
The New York Times recently called the LA Phil “America’s most important orchestra. Period”. Look no further than this concert’s program: Ravel’s La Valse – Zubin Mehta; Lutosławski’s Symphony No. 4 – Esa-Pekka Salonen; Strawinsky’s Firebird Suite – Gustavo Dudamel and the World Premiere of Daníel Bjarnason’s New Work for Three Conductors!

BONUS LA Phil – The Tradition of the New. The documentary portrays the LA Phil and its continual creative reinvention on the occasion of this jubilee. Including a historical part to trace the steps that played a part in where the orchestra stands today + interviews with the current and former chief conductors Dudamel, Mehta, Salonen + Frank Gehry, John Adams + music critics, and members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic staff.
