What Does Dudamel’s Paris Opera Appointment Mean For Los Angeles?

For star conductors, of course, it’s not unusual to have appointments both with an orchestra and an opera company. And Dudamel’s contract with the LA Phil runs through the 2025-26 season. Classical France is interested: “Radio France, clearly anticipating the appointment, ran five 90-minute programs on Dudamel in the last week of January, ostensibly in celebration of the conductor’s 40th birthday. Dudamel’s appointment by Paris Opera’s new general director, Alexander Neef, clearly marks a new v...

The LA Phil Was Born During A Pandemic, But Will It Survive This One?

The monetary losses are staggering. But far worse was what happened during the first months. Mark Swed: “The L.A. Phil publicly demonstrated little leadership.

The LA Phil Tries The Online Route

The Hollywood Bowl couldn’t have audiences – but the musicians could be there, distanced, and the orchestra took advantage of its city’s geographical advantages. The concerts were only “possible in the age of the novel coronavirus because the [Hollywood Bowl] stage is about 5,700 square feet— more than twice the size of the Walt Disney Concert Hall stage — and completely outdoors, but for the partial cover of the shell. All participants, including artists and tech crews, were tested for COVID-1...
