Dudamel, Yuja Wang, the Rite of Spring and a John Adams premiere a concert that positively shouts energy, colour and joy.

You cant accuse the Los Angeles Philharmonic of underselling itself wrote The Guardian during the LA Phils 2018 Barbican residency and when you put Gustavo Dudamel on stage with Yuja Wang, its pretty much a given that sparks are going to fly.

The first London performance of John Adamss devilish new piano concerto would make news in its own right: but tonight itll make for a high-octane launch to Wangs season-long Barbican Artist Spotlight. And if, after that, the roof is still in place, Dudamels Rite of Spring should lift it right off. But first comes a real rediscovery: an orchestral work by Ginastera thats effectively a mini-concerto for a virtuoso orchestra.
