In July, Gustavo Dudamel celebrates ten years as music director of the LA Phil with a series of performances at the orchestra’s beloved summer home, the Hollywood Bowl. The LA Phil's 98th summer season spotlights artists from around the world and genres from classical and pops to jazz, rock, and world music.
Gustavo leads the LA Phil's first Bowl concert on July 16 with cellist Pablo Ferrández in Dvořák's Cello Concerto and a collaborative performance of Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet Suite, featuring the L.A. Dance Project with original choreography by Benjamin Millepied.
On July 18, the LA Phil presents Bravo Gustavo!, a celebration of Dudamel's 10 year anniversary in L.A. Joined by members of YOLA, the LA Phil will perform music by Hollywood's Golden Age composers Korngold, Herrmann, Steiner, Waxman, and Mancini, as well as Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3 with pianist Khatia Buniatishvili.
Mexican singer-songwriter Natalia Lafourcade joins the Maestro on July 21 for an evening showcasing the two artists’ shared reverence for music and its vast capacity to change lives.
The LA Phil presents Mahler’s larger-than-life Symphony No. 2 “Resurrection” on July 23 with soprano Miah Persson, mezzo-soprano Anna Larsson, and the Los Angeles Master Chorale, and Gustavo closes out his Hollywood Bowl season on July 25 with pianist Yuja Wang in a performance of John Adams’s new concerto, Must the Devil Have All the Good Tunes?. This concert also features Barber’s Adagio for Strings and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4 and both programmes will tour to the Edinburgh Festival in August 2019.
