LA Phil: Soundstage
Friday, October 23, 2020
Category: Virtual Concerts & Programs

SOUND/STAGE is an online concert film series produced by LA Phil Media, the media and digital initiatives arm of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association. Each episode is organized around a single artist, ensemble, or theme that is explored through music as well as supporting essays, artwork, playlists, and interviews. Created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the series is filmed at the Hollywood Bowl, where musicians are able to perform together outside while socially distanced. 

The October 23 concert features Beethoven's Seventh Symphony, which Richard Wagner called the “apotheosis of dance.” Gustavo Dudamel describes Beethoven as pure beauty and joy. Watch as the orchestra channels that spirit as it comes back together for one of the first times since the onset of the COVID crisis to perform this timeless and exuberant masterpiece.
