L.A. Philharmonic, Dudamel concert in London to be broadcast live via radio
The Los Angeles Philharmonic will travel to Europe for a 15-day tour starting Jan. 21, but fans at home will be able to tune in live to one of the orchestra's London concerts, which will be broadcast via radio.
The live concert will be broadcast from London's Barbican on Jan. 27 at 7:30 p.m., London time (11:30 a.m. Pacific). A spokeswoman for the orchestra said the radio broadcast will be carried on KUSC-FM (91.5) as part of the program "Classical Live" by American Public Media. The concert will include performances of John Adams' "Slonimsky’s Earbox," Leonard Bernstein's Symphony No. 1, "Jeremiah" (with mezzo-soprano Kelley O'Connor) and Beethoven's Symphony No. 7.
This is the same program that the orchestra performed during Sunday's concert at Walt Disney Concert Hall, which was broadcast live to cinemas around the U.S. and Canada.
In addition, the orchestra's Jan. 27 and 28 concerts in London will be broadcast on Feb. 16 and Feb. 17, respectively, via Classic FM as part of their Full Works Concert program, which can be heard online. The Jan. 28 concert will be a performance of Mahler's Symphony No. 9.
The orchestra's tour will also include stops in Lisbon; Paris; Madrid; Cologne, Germany; Budapest, Hungary; and Vienna. In all, the orchestra will perform 13 concerts in seven cities.
