The LA Phil bring their residency to a stirring conclusion with pieces by Barber, Tchaikovsky and John Adams

Barber Adagio
John Adams 
Must the Devil Have All the Good Tunes? (European Premiere)
Tchaikovsky Symphony No 4

The Los Angeles Philharmonic and Gustavo Dudamel bring us right up to date  for the electrifying conclusion to their very special International Festival residency. The diabolical centrepiece of their final concert is a fiery, propulsive new concerto from one of today’s most charismatic, captivating composers – with a brightly shining classical star as soloist.

John Adams wrote his scintillating Must the Devil Have All the Good Tunes? – receiving its first European performance – for the astonishing talents of Chinese piano sensation Yuja Wang, who awed International Festival audiences with two magnificent concerts in 2015.

Dudamel and his remarkable LA musicians open the evening with Barber’s heartbreaking Adagio  and bring their residency to a stirring conclusion with the super-charged emotions of Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony.
