LA Phil LIVE: Dudamel conducts Beethoven
Dudamel leads a program of passionate, vigorous music by three different composers, each of whom expresses that passion in a highly individual style. The highlight is Beethoven's Symphony No. 7, his ebullient, life-affirming symphony that achieved instant popular acclaim lasting to this day. Also featured is the Stravinsky-inspired Slonimsky's Earbox, written by acclaimed American composer John Adams (Nixon in China), and Leonard Bernstein's powerful First Symphony, Jeremiah, a profoundly personal account of the Book of Lamentations. Kelley O'Connor (mezzo-soprano) is the soloist.
