Gustavo and the Los Angeles Philharmonic Perform Dvorak Final Three Symphonies on New Digital Release
Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic garnered rave reviews for their performances of Antonín Dvořák’s masterful final three symphonies in February 2020. Hailed as “a revelation” by the Los Angeles Times, their interpretations were recorded live at Walt Disney Concert Hall by Deutsche Grammophon for release as a digital album – the follow-up to the artists’ GRAMMY® Award-winning recording of Mahler’s Symphony No. 8. Out today, 29 July 2022, and also available in Dolby Atmos®, Antonín Dvořák: Symphonies Nos. 7 – 9 captures the power and intensity of Dudamel’s vision of three of the greatest works in the symphonic repertoire.
The Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Music & Artistic Director amplifies the turbulent emotions of each work and plunges deep into their often-dark inner worlds, connecting with the music’s spiritual roots in Dvořák’s Czech homeland and reflecting ideas formed during time as the composer’s Director of the National Conservatory of Music of America in New York City.
“Working with my orchestra on Dvořák’s late symphonies was a unique and deeply moving experience, and these three performances are an important addition to our growing catalogue,” comments Dudamel. “I’m grateful to Deutsche Grammophon for recording us with such enthusiasm and sensitivity, and for taking the music we make in Los Angeles and sharing it around the world.”
Antonín Dvořák: Symphonies Nos. 7 – 9 is available NOW as a standard digital album and in Dolby Atmos®. Listen here.
