Une Célébration De John Williams
For the 2014/15 Opening Night Concert and Gala, the Los Angeles Philharmonic paid loving tribute to composer John Williams, long a champion and close friend of the LA Phil. Gustavo Dudamel, an awestruck fan of the musical icon, led the orchestra in a cross-section of Maestro Williams’ matchless canon. This concert concert features Itzhak Perlman with a very special musical performance of pieces from Schindler’s List as well as the Cadenza and variations form Fiddler on the Roof. Jazz-elements will fill the air during Escapades from Catch Me if You Can, and may the force be with you during the iconic tunes from Star Wars.
Starring Los Angeles Philharmonic, Itzhak Perlman, U.S. Army Herald Trumpets
