The Dudamel Era in LA, Year 2 Begins

Last week, Gustavo Dudamel opened his second season as Music Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. It was a celebratory concert with music by Rossini and several Latin-American composers. We'll sample a few highlights, including Rossini's La Gazza Ladra Overture, the Danzon No. 2 by Arturo Marquez, and several performances featuring the sparkling tenor voice of Juan Diego Florez. (And yes, we'll hear both of his encores!)
