Video of Gustavo Dudamel's L.A. Phil inaugural gala concert coming to iTunes
The Los Angeles Philharmonic Assn. says that the Deutsche Grammophon live recording, part of the DG Concerts series, will be available for download starting Sept. 14. The video shows the Oct. 8, 2009, performance at Walt Disney Concert Hall in which the young Venezuelan conductor led the orchestra in the world premiere of John Adams' "City Noir," which was commissioned for the event, and Mahler's Symphony No. 1.
Other Phil tech ventures include the "Bravo Gustavo" online and iPhone conducting game and a Hollywood Bowl phone app.
Dudamel and the Philharmonic will open the 2010-11 season with an Oct. 7 gala concert with Peruvian tenor Juan Diego Flórez.
