CORIGLIANO, Symphony No. 1
TCHAIKOVSKY, Symphony No. 5
The Los Angeles Philharmonic will be celebrating its centenary in 2018-2019, although the American band hardly seems old at all, especially, now that it’s under the direction of the dazzling Gustavo Dudamel, crowned “musician of the year” by Musical America in December 2012. At the helm of the LA Phil since 2009, he has forged a spectacular reputation, partly through the originality of his programming.

BWW Review: GUSTAVO DUDAMEL AND THE LOS ANGELES PHILHARMONIC PLAY BRUCKNER at Geffen Hall At Lincoln Center
November 27, 2019
No one knows what is going on underneath the modest exterior. Such was the case of Austrian-born Anton Bruckner (1824-1896). A man whose personal credo seems to have been 'say little but do much,' Bruckner managed to overcome a difficult early life with a huge amount of perseverance, not to mention musical talent. He became an expert organist and choral director, channeling his rich interior life, a life of passionate devotion to God (if not people), into his remarkable choral compositions and eleven symphonies. Like a number of other nineteenth century composers whose Muse did not come to them until middle age, Bruckner's compositional phase did not begin until he was nearly forty years old, and he did not find great appreciation outside musical circles until some twenty years later. He was fortunate to have experienced this approbation during his lifetime, however delayed.
