LA Phil Jul 27

July 27
Brahms & Bruckner with Dudamel
(featuring Anne-Sophie Mutter & Pablo Ferrández)

Nicknamed “the saucy maid” by its composer, Anton Bruckner’s First Symphony is bursting with exuberance and grand musical architecture inspired by Wagner and Beethoven. Dudamel leads the LA Phil in a journey through Bruckner’s compelling extremes—from bittersweet melodies to an explosive and fiery finale. The electrifying violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter recorded one of the definitive versions of Brahms’ Double Concerto 40 years ago, but she was inspired to release a new recording of it in 2022 with her protégé and collaborator cellist Pablo Ferrández. The pair reprise that performance, bringing out the joy and turbulence of Brahms’ musical conversation.
