KUSC to air Dudamel’s three recent Hollywood Bowl concerts with the LA Phil
As part of its continued partnership with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Classical KUSC radio will broadcast Gustavo Dudamel’s three recent performances with the LA Phil at the Hollywood Bowl—his first Bowl subscription concerts as Music Director—beginning on August 28.
The first of Dudamel’s concerts that will be aired is his performance of Bizet’s Carmen. Recorded live on August 1, the occasion marked the Venezuelan Maestro’s U.S. opera debut. On September 4 KUSC will broadcast Dudamel’s concert from August 3: a program that included Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, performed with Venezuelan pianist Gabriela Montero, and selections from Bernstein's On the Town. The final of the three Dudamel-led concerts, which featured an international selection of musical works including Ravel's belovedBolero, will air on September 7.
The concerts will be broadcast throughout much of Southern California on 91.5 Classical KUSC, 88.5 KPSC in Palm Springs, 91.1 KDSC in Thousand Oaks, 99.7 KESC in Morro Bay and San Luis Obispo, and 88.7 KQSC in Santa Barbara. The programs can also be heard online at KUSC.org, and each concert will be available for online streaming for one week following the broadcast.
