Gustavo conducts Berlin Philharmonic in German capital and on tour in Paris & Vienna
Berlin logoBeginning April 26, Gustavo joins the Berlin Philharmonic to lead the orchestra in concerts at home in Berlin and on tour in Vienna and Paris. Gustavo first conducted the legendary ensemble in 2008. This month, he returns to the German capital to lead the Berlin Philharmonic in a program that includes Ravel's orchestral suite Ma mère l'oye, Strauss's tone poem Also Sprach Zarathustra, and Korngold's Violin Concerto, featuring Leonidas Kavakos (April 26, 27, & 28; Philharmonie, Berlin). 
From Berlin, Dudamel and the Philharmonic travel to Viennafor two concerts that include Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. For their concert at the Spanische Hofreitschule on May 1, they present Beethoven's Fifth alongside Brahms's Variations on a Theme of Haydn and Haydn's Cello Concerto in C, with the French cellist Gautier Capuçon. On May 2, Gustavo and the Philharmonic perform Beethoven's Fifth and Strauss's Also Sprach Zarathustra at Vienna's Musikverein, and they reprise this program on May 3 at Paris's Salle Pleyel.

Next month Gustavo returns to LA Phil for Mozart performances, Adams world premiere

Following the success of his Mahler Project earlier this year, Gustavo Dudamel returns to lead the Los Angeles Philharmonic in a series of performances that celebrate the music of Mozart and break new musical ground with the world premiere of John Adams's oratorio The Gospel According to the Other Mary. Gustavo marks his return to the LA Phil with a Green Umbrella concert on May 8, when he and the Los Angeles Philharmonic New Music Group give the world premiere of Joseph Pereira's Concerto for Percussion and Chamber Orchestra and the west coast premiere of Andy Akiho's Alloy

On May 18, 20, 24, and 26, Gustavo conducts a fully-staged production of Mozart's Don Giovanni, the first installment of a three-year Mozart/Da Ponte opera project presented at Walt Disney Concert Hall. This exceptional staging will be brought to life by a creative team that includes Pritzker Prize-winning architect Frank Gehry, Kate and Laura Mulleavy - founders of fashion house Rodarte - and acclaimed director Christopher Alden. Gustavo and the LA Phil continue to explore the music of Mozart throughout May with two concert series that include Mozart's Exsultate, jubilate and Posthorn Serenade, among others. 

From May 31 through June 3, Gustavo and the LA Phil give the world premiere of The Gospel According to the Other Maryby the American composer John Adams. Based on the New Testament stories of Lazarus and the Passion of Jesus, plus contemporary Latin American poetry, this oratorio for orchestra, chorus, and soloists takes a fresh approach to the combination of materials that Adams pioneered so successfully in El Niño. The libretto, created by Peter Sellars, draws from the works of the Mexican poet Rosario Castellanos as well as Dorothy Day, Louise Erdich, and June Jordan.
