Los Angeles Philharmonic
Each year since its founding in 1919, the Los Angeles Philharmonic has been hailed as Southern California’s leading performing arts institution. Today, under the dynamic leadership of Venezuelan Gustavo Dudamel, who in 2009 became the orchestra’s eleventh music director, the Philharmonic is still recognized as one of the world’s outstanding orchestras.
These 13 concerts, recorded during the LA Phil’s 2016-17 season, feature the orchestra with an impressive roster of guest artists and conductors.
The series, hosted by KUSC’s Brian Lauritzen, features interviews with soloists and orchestra members, offering unique insights and giving listeners a more in-depth perspective.
