Dudamel on the screens

The LA Phil's music director Gustavo Dudamel appears on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno this evening. Watch part 1 of the interview here.
This weekend the LA Phil hits the silver screen in a concert program. Find out more information here.
January 9: Dudamel conducts Beethoven 7
During this LIVE broadcast, Dudamel leads a program of passionate, vigorous music by three different composers, each of whom expresses that passion in a highly individual style. The highlight is Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 – his ebullient, life-affirming symphony that achieved instant popular acclaim lasting to this day. Also featured is the Stravinsky-inspired Slonimsky’s Earbox written by acclaimed American composer John Adams (Nixon in China), and Leonard Bernstein’s powerful First Symphony, "Jeremiah," a profoundly personal account of the Book of Lamentations.

March 13: Dudamel conducts Tchaikovsky
This all-Tchaikovsky program features his three Overture-Fantasies inspired by Shakespeare plays – Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet and The Tempest. Interspersed between these wonderful symphonic poems will be readings from the Bard’s immortal works by a cast of leading actors.

June 5: Dudamel conducts Brahms 4
Power and beauty can be heard throughout Brahms’ Fourth Symphony, from the tragic first movement – the composer at his most dramatic and passionate – through the requiem-like second and surprisingly joyful third, to the climactic final chords of the forceful last movement. Dudamel also is joined by brothers Renaud and Gautier Capu├žon for Brahms’ towering Double Concerto, Brahms’ final orchestral work.

In San Antonio, there are five theaters you can go and see these concerts: http://www.fathomevents.com/upcoming/locations/78229/01/09/2011/PerformingArts/event/laphil_beethoven.aspx
