2021 Residency

Gustavo smiling joyfully whilst conducting

'The megastars are here' proclaimed The Arts Desk when Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Phil last came to town. Now the megastars are back, for a second season as our International Orchestral Partner.

Together this electrifying partnership perform titanic symphonies from Beethoven and Mahler alongside European premieres of new works by Daníel Bjarnason and Gabriella Smith and bring Thomas Adès's Dante-inspired ballet music to life, before Dudamel passes the conductor's baton to Adès himself in a free late-night concert from the LA Phil New Music Group of cutting-edge contemporary classical works.



‘The biggest, boldest and brassiest of America’s orchestras‘
‘A formidable outfit, bringing with it a potent combination of sheer muscle, slinky musicality and an unarguable snap of self-confidence. ‘
