Gustavo Dudamel’s Los Angeles Concerts

“Bienvenido Gustavo” Walt Disney Concert
(October 3–11). Gustavo Dudamel is a conductor who’s enjoyed almost
pop-star hype at the head of Venezuela’s Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra, as well as
since being named Esa-Pekka Salonen’s successor at the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Now,
finally, the 28-year-old is assuming his post with a week of concerts, starting with a free event
at the Hollywood Bowl (lines went around the block the day tickets were released), continuing with
the season opener—a John Adams world premiere—and going on through the weekend with a
new work by Unsuk Chin and Mahler’s First Symphony.
