Walt Disney Concert Hall
111 South Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90012, Los Angeles, CA 90012
The Los Angeles Philharmonic takes on three perspectives from the New World as it performs works by Charles Ives, Christopher Rouse and Antonín Dvorak at Walt Disney Concert Hall. St. Louis Symphony conductor David Robertson leads the orchestra in a program that includes the great American innovator Ives' "Three Places in New England", and an organ concerto composed by Rouse specifically for LA Phil's acclaimed organist Paul Jacobs. Dvorak's Symphony No.9 finishes out the bill, drawing inspiration from Native American and African American sources in a stirring display of what music grown in our country can be, even in the hands of a Czech music pioneer.
