Let Gustav Holst's popular orchestral suite take you on a musical journey across the solar system when Gustavo Dudamel conducts the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl, where you'll hear Holst's take on the astrological symbolism behind each of our neighboring planets. A longtime favorite of prog rock bands and movie directors, "The Planets" has been heard in many video games, television shows and movies. Opening the concert, rising violin star Pekka Kuusisto soars during the world premiere of acclaimed Icelandic composer Daniel Bjarnason's violin concerto.
