Meanwhile, On The Other Coast...
Lest we forget (and how could we?): Gustavo Dudamel led the first concert of his tenure in Los Angeles this weekend. And it wasn't even his official opening concert with the L.A. Philharmonic. But his "Bienvenido, Gustavo!" event at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday had international buzz, live Internet presence, enthusiastic participation from a wide audience, and a number of critics. Even the latter got excited. Mark Swed, in the Los Angeles Times, called it "a Beethoven Ninth to be remembered." Anthony Tommasini, in the New York Times, was more cautious, but observed that "the finale... was exhilarating." Even Variety weighed in -- and waxed enthusiastic. The lovefest continues.
