About This Performance
The classical season at the Bowl kicks off with a night of Russian exhilaration! Gustavo Dudamel starts with the exotic color of Borodin’s symphonic pictures. Then he teams with Lang Lang, one of the most compelling pianists of our time, for Prokofiev’s very popular concerto. Finally he leads Ravel’s timeless version of Mussorgsky’s thrilling showpiece.
When artist/architect Viktor Hartmann died suddenly, his supporters put on a large exhibit of his work. Inspired, his good friend Modest Mussorgsky captured that experience in a power-packed piano suite that has been a huge hit ever since, arranged for everything from solo guitar to rock band. But, besides the piano original, nothing has remained as universally popular as Ravel’s masterful orchestration.
