The first silmulcast of the second 'LA Phil LIVE' season began Oct. 9 with Dudamel conducting an all-Mendelssohn program of the "Hebrides" Overture and the "Scottish" Symphony, as well as the Violin Concerto with Dutch soloist Janine Jansen, at Walt Disney Concert Hall.
Gustavo Dudamel plays dual roles as conductor and host of the broadcast. The program showcases three of the composer’s most evocative and romantic works: the vividly descriptive Hebrides Overture and the “Scottish” Symphony - both of which are musical souvenirs of Mendelssohn’s 1829 vacation in Scotland and the Hebrides islands - as well as his passionate Violin Concerto.
Take two invigorating musical souvenirs of Mendelssohn’s travels; add his glorious concerto, with its ecstatic outpouring of Romantic ardor and melody. Rediscover just why this beloved composer is a favorite of audiences and musicians alike.
