Something special again this week. Even the announcer at Radio France Musique said so.
L.A.'s very own (we like to think so) Gustavo Dudamel leading Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France in an all-Brahms program (Symphony Number 3 and Symphony Number 1). Recorded live last week as it was happening, it's further evidence that Gustavo Dudamel is one of the greats and the brightest light to come along in a very long time.
The program is broken up between two players. The top player is the Brahms 3rd Symphony and the bottom player is the Brahms 1st Symphony. Announcements are in French and the audience is bonkers.
Here's the program:
Symphonie n°3 en fa majeur Op.90 (1883)
1- Allegro con brio
3- Poco allegretto
Symphonie n°1 en ut mineur Op.68 (1876)
1- Poco sostenuto - Allegro
2- Andante sostenuto
3- Poco allegretto e grazioso
4- Adagio - Piu andante - Allegro non troppo ma con brio - Piu allegro

Enjoy and see a live concert at some point soon.
