Los Angeles Philharmonic: the Inaugural Concert

Join us for the monthly International Movie Night tonight at 6:30pm. We will be watching the Los Angeles Philharmonic. This DVD presents the highly anticipated Los Angeles Philharmonic opening night concert on October 8th 2009, led by the orchestra's newly appointed music director Gustavo Dudamel.

A world-class pairing, the L. A. Phil and Dudamel mark the start of their partnership with this concert, filmed live at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. The program defines everything that is fresh and exciting about their collaboration: John Adams world-premiere composition, City Noir, that steps back into the dark past of Los Angeles, and the all-embracing First Symphony by Mahler, the composer who launched Dudamel's dazzling international career.
