Dudamel’s 2010/11 season with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra
This September Gustavo Dudamel and the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra open their 2010/11 season with concerts of Mahler's "Tragic" Sixth Symphony. While Dudamel frequently performs works by Mahler, his selection of this piece to kick off his fourth season as Music Director of the GSO is especially appropriate since 2010 marks the 150th anniversary of the composer's birth. The three performances of this program are on September 2, 3, and 4.
Other highlights of Dudamel’s upcoming season with the GSO include performances of Berg’s rarely heardSeven Early Songs and Stravinsky’s The Firebird in November, programs of Beethoven’s Second Piano Concerto—played by Lars Vogt—and Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8 in March, and concerts of Prokofiev’s monumental Fifth Symphony in April. Later in the spring, Dudamel and the GSO embark on a Scandinavian tour before returning home for concerts of Brahms and Nielsen.
