Around Town: Basking In Brahms Unbound At Disney Hall

Last Thursday evening I had the pleasure of being invited to see the LA Philharmonic at the amazing Disney Hall  for a performance of A German Requiem by Brahms.
It was 70 minutes of sublime music performed by the LA Philharmonic, the 100 voices of the Los Angeles Master Chorale, Soprano Christine Schafer and Baritone Matthias Goerne.
Conductor Gustavo Dudamel was in fine form.  He is such a rock star.
Here is the 4th Movement of the Requiem

Brahms with Caspar David Freidrich...beautiful, isn't it?

The LA Phil will be continuing their Brahms Unbound program through May 20th so if you have a chance to go, don't miss it.

Oh how stunning, I've never been Downtown but I love Gehry's work so I must do it next time.
Having a Bellini, The Cipriani reminds me of the Bel Air - you are so lucky to have such beauty on your doorstep.

Jill, he's treated like a rock star here. LA loves Dudamel.

Tabitha, ah...surrounded by Italian men and sipping a bellini at the Cipriani...that's kind of like my idea of heaven!
Have a wonderful vacation.

Hello Belle:
The Disney Hall looks to be a most wonderful piece of modern architecture. It has such bravura that one can only admire the mind behind its creation.

The Brahms concert sounds to be just our kind of thing. We are often to be found in the Budapest 'Palace of Arts' which also has wonderful classical music concerts. It is so good to have these marvellous places at hand!
