Gustavo Dudamel

Tastemaker

There’s nothing quite like seeing a performance conducted by Gustavo Dudamel, whose famous dark curls bounce along with the LA Phil’s orchestra like he’s a modern day, better-styled Beethoven. A performance by Gustavo, the Music and Artistic Director of the LA Philharmonic, is expressive and singularly spectacular. He moves and flows as though he is the personification of music itself, unifying the cacophony into a singularly chilling force of nature.
