LA Phil: Dudamel Conducts Beethoven 9 + Drinks in The Garden

April 20, 2018 | 6:30 pm-11:00 pm

Beethoven’s Ninth has become a touchstone of Western civilization, a musical icon, even a political symbol. But a masterwork’s reputation or place in history is not why we listen. We listen to Beethoven’s Ninth to experience first-hand, in real time, the power, the vision, the humanity Beethoven has crafted into sound. The Ninth ends in such a way as to make us want to stand and shout for joy. But, with a performance by Dudamel, we get even more. Every pitch, every articulation, every dynamic means something to him, and therefore to our personal experience. And all this focus on detail serves his integrated conception of the piece as a whole. We leave irradiated with aesthetic energy, having been present for a living, breathing work of art.
