FanFaire celebrates GUSTAVO DUDAMEL
SUPERCONDUCTOR!

LA PHILHARMONIC MUSIC DIRECTOR

BIENVENIDO, GUSTAVO!

Dudamel’s ELECTRIFYING inaugural season: a season of “firsts”

Los Angeles has never welcomed a Music Director of its flagship orchestra in quite the same way. Indeed, there has not been a welcome quite like this in recent memory for a conductor of classical music. But then, GUSTAVO DUDAMEL is not your typical conductor, and everyone who has seen him conduct and experienced his music, including today’s most eminent conductors, says without pre-condition that he is very special. It is often heard today that not since Leonard Bernstein has a young conductor generated so much excitement. And not just in the rarefied world of classical music. So, when the phenomenon from Venezuela officially arrived as LA Phil’s Music Director, it was as if all of the city came to welcome him at the BIENVENIDO GUSTAVO! concert at the Hollywood Bowl.

Have you ever been to the Bowl when even the sky-highest seat was taken? Perhaps, some say, not since the Rolling Stones rolled into town in 2005 after an absence of 40 years. That was for rock music, though. But for Beethoven? You better believe it – this time, people aged 8 to 80, more than 18,000 of them, came to rock to Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony – and not just the by-now-almost-too-familiar “Ode to Joy” but the complete work, which was the highlight and finale of the celebration.

Earlier, the 4-hour program showcased a host of other artists –from local ensembles to rising stars and established names–and a variety of musical genres reflecting LA’s wide cultural diversity. It was quite a welcome celebration, the first of its kind. But more than that, it was an authentic community lovefest that, one would hope, gained for classical music in “la-la land” a new and younger audience, a firmer foothold, and a promising future.
