Gustavo and the Los Angeles Philharmonic Join Yuja Wang for Deutsche Grammophon Rachmaninoff Release

Los Angeles, the city in which Sergei Rachmaninoff (1873-1943) spent the last few months of his life, played host to an exceptional festival of music in February 2023. As part the Rachmaninoff 150 celebrations, Yuja Wang joined the Los Angeles Philharmonic and its Music & Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel over two consecutive weekends to perform all four of the composer’s piano concertos and the Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. Deutsche Grammophon was there to capture their sold-out and critically acclaimed performances live at Walt Disney Concert Hall.  Rachmaninoff: The Piano Concertos and Paganini Rhapsody is available NOW as a 2-CD set, a 3-LP vinyl set, and digital release. The filmed cycle of five performances premiered on STAGE+ on June 24 and will also be available on the LA Phil’s free online concert series SOUND/STAGE on September 8.
