Dudamel Debut Online

Tonight's the night--the official inaugural concert of Gustavo Dudamel in his new job leading the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Anticipation and ticket demand are riding high, as this LA Times article suggests.

You can hear what all the excitement is about, tonight on this website (NB - not on the radio!) [update] and on the radio as well! The concert is at 9 Central, Mahler and John Adams are on the program, and Fred Child will be hosting.
