Gustavo Dudamel Dan Porges

If Gustavo Dudamel was running on fumes the night he and the Los Angeles Philharmonic played at London's Barbican Hall, no one could tell. He and the members of the L.A. Phil had stayed up late the night before, celebrating his 30th birthday. And they went on to deliver a dynamite concert the next day. One critic called it "electrifying, impossible not to be swept away." We'll hear highlights from that post-birthday concert in today's show.
