LIVE Tonight on WRTI.org: Gustavo Dudamel, LA Phil, Mahler's Symphony No. 5
Calling all classical night owls! Join us on Thursday, October 2nd at 11 pm for a LIVE audio performance from LA's Disney Hall, and chime in on the concert in the live chat room.
Gustavo Dudamel launches the LA Phil season with a high-voltage program, beginning with a new percussion concerto by Pulitzer winner David Lang (Bang on a Can), performed by S? Percussion. Then, an evocative trumpet fanfare initiates Mahler's Fifth Symphony, whose huge musical canvas includes an achingly beautiful love song to his wife, Alma.
Lang: man made (U.S. premiere, LA Phil co-commission)
