    Led by Music & Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel, the Los Angeles Philharmonic embarks on a five-city international tour to New York, Amsterdam, Paris, Luxembourg and London Sunday, March 13, through Thursday, March 24.  

    The tour will include the LA Phil’s second international residency at London’s Barbican Centre, return visits to New York and Amsterdam, and the orchestra’s first Luxembourg performance in almost 50 years. The orchestra will also make its first visit to the newly opened Philharmonie in Paris.

    Dudamel and the orchestra will perform works by Gustav Mahler, John Williams, Alberto Ginastera, Andrew Norman and Aaron Copland, all of which are part of the LA Phil’s 2015/16 season at Walt Disney Concert Hall. Norman’s Play: Level 1 replaces his new work for orchestra for both the subscription concerts at Walt Disney Concert Hall on February 25-28, as well as the tour. The Norman new work, an LA Phil commission, has been delayed until a future season.    

    The orchestra’s Barbican residency will include a presentation of Messiaen’s Des Canyons aux étoiles featuring LA Phil-commissioned visuals of the American landscape from photographer Deborah O’Grady. Additionally, the residency will mark the beginning of a student-centered initiative between the LA Phil and the Barbican Centre dedicated to defining the future of orchestral music from the point-of-view of the diverse young musicians who are that future. Building off the 2013 international symposium Future Play: music systems in the 21st century presented by the LA Phil and the Barbican, students from the El Sistema-inspired Youth Orchestra Los Angeles (YOLA) program will join their peers in London for a series of rehearsals and conversations aimed at uncovering what their roles might be in advocating for and shaping the orchestras of tomorrow. Dudamel will lead an open rehearsal on March 24, conducting young musicians from Los Angeles and London.    

    Gustavo Dudamel is defined by his untiring advocacy of access to music for all. As a symphonic and operatic conductor, his music making on four continents continues to inspire audiences of all ages. Currently serving as Music & Artistic Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Music Director of the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela, the impact of his musical leadership is felt internationally.  While his commitment to these posts accounts for the major portion of his yearly schedule, Dudamel also guest conducts with some of the world’s greatest musical institutions, including the Vienna Philharmonic which he returns to lead in Vienna and on tour in 2016 and which he has been invited to conduct in the globally televised 2017 Vienna Philharmonic New Year’s Concert. Now in his seventh season as Music & Artistic Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Dudamel’s contract has been extended through the 2021/2022 season. Under his leadership the Los Angeles Philharmonic has expanded its diversified outreach through many notable projects, including Youth Orchestra Los Angeles (YOLA), influenced by Venezuela’s widely successful El Sistema. With YOLA, Gustavo brings music to children in the underserved communities of Los Angeles, and also serves as an inspiration for similar efforts throughout the U.S. and in Europe.
