Phil 100 / Various

More Info:

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 it's 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; Strawinsky's Firebird Suite - Gustavo Dudamel and the World Premiere of Daniel Bjarnason's New Work for Three Conductors! This release also includes the bonus film LA Phil - The Tradition of the New. The documentary portrays the LA Phil and it's continual creative reinvention on the occasion of this jubilee. Including a historical part to trace the steps that played a part in where the orchestra stands today and interviews with the current and former chief conductors Dudamel, Mehta, Salonen, Frank Gehry, John Adams and music critics, and members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic staff. 1.
