“Classical-music rock star” Gustavo Dudamel (New York Times) brings the Los Angeles Philharmonic for an exhilarating program of exploration and intrigue. The evening is anchored by Shostakovich’s searing and ultimately triumphal Fifth Symphony, craftily described by the Soviet-era composer as “a lengthy spiritual battle, crowned by victory.” A new piece by Esa-Pekka Salonen and Edgard Varèse’s powerful modernist showpiece Amériques round out the program.
