Inside The Music Concerts
Join our new Principal Guest Conductor Susanna Mälkki and take a walk on the wild side with Richard Strauss’ vivid tone poem depicting an exhilarating mountain journey. Plus, Finland’s Tero Saarinen choreographs the U.S. premiere of Zimmerman's Cello Concerto.
Celebrating Salonen as composer, we present the newly revised version of the work he composed for the opening of Walt Disney Concert Hall. This will also be our first chance to see violinist Vilde Frang – already a sensation in Europe – in Beethoven’s towering concerto.
Dudamel teams with famed director Peter Sellars for Robert Schumann’s rarely performed oratorio Das Paradies und die Peri, about a fairy-like spirit – somewhere between an angel and a devil – who is trying to re-enter heaven. The climactic end of our season!
