LA Phil Live: Dudamel Conducts Mahler
Gustavo Dudamel leads two of the world's great orchestras - the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Simón Bolivar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela - combined with multiple choirs and soloists in Mahler's "Symphony of a Thousand" (No. 8), the apotheosis of the Romantic symphony. This live performance will indeed put over 1000 musicians on the stage in Caracas, Venezuela, giving North American audiences a chance to witness Dudamel making transcendent music on his home turf. Enhanced behind-the-scenes content will include footage of El Sistema, the celebrated Venezuelan music education program that nurtured Dudamel.
