LA Phil presents BARTÓK CYCLE WITH DUDAMEL & YUJA WANG: PIANO CONCERTO NO. 1 from Friday, May 26 through Sunday, May 28. Dudamel’s partnership with the astonishing Yuja Wang for Bartók’s three piano concertos begins with a powerhouse program that includes arresting choral works by two of the Hungarian composer’s contemporaries. Although all three composers were born in the 19th century and flourished outside the German/Austrian mainstream, each one was destined to make an indelible mark on music of the 20th century. They made extensive use of folk materials from their native lands in a distinctive way and created their own instantly recognizable styles. Their differences and similarities will be on display throughout this special cycle.
