LA Phil 100: The Los Angeles Philharmonic Centennial Birthday Gala (2 DVD)

A century to the day after the orchestra’s first concert on 24th October 1919, the centennial season culminates in a “splashy gala night” (San Francisco Classical Voice) at the Walt Disney Concert Hall with the current and former chief conductors Dudamel, Mehta and Salonen sharing the podium. The repertoire is a true reflection of the DNA that makes the LA Phil the LA Phil and “the defining factor of this orchestra is its ability to blend genres and styles to create totally new takes on classical works.”(The Guardian) The New York Times recently called the LA Phil “America’s most important orchestra. Period.” Look no further than this concert ´s program: Ravel's La Valse - Zubin Mehta; Lutoslawski's Symphony No. 4 - Esa-Pekka Salonen; Stravinsky's Firebird Suite - Gustavo Dudamel and the World Premiere of Daníel Bjarnason's New Work for Three Conductors!
