Gustavo Dudamel’s arrival in Los Angeles in 2009 was an earth-shaking event, with the giddy breathlessness suggesting a rock star or other A-list celebrity.

“Los Angeles Philharmonic is the most important orchestra in the country.”
—THE NEW YORK TIMES
“If ever an orchestra was riding the crest of a wave, it is the Los Angeles Philharmonic.”
—THE TIMES (LONDON)
