In 2011, the Los Angeles Philharmonic presented a series of live simulcasts called LA Phil LIVE. This special series included full-concert performances with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, led by dynamic Music and Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel, live from both Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles as well as Dudamel's home nation, Venezuela. LA Phil LIVE provided fans with access to a unique concert experience that included exclusive interviews, backstage access, Q&A with Gustavo Dudamel and guest artists, special hosts and more.
In preparation for the second of these LA Phil LIVE simulcasts, Gustavo Dudamel and the orchestra tirelessly rehearsed Tchaikovsky's Shakespeare-inspired singe-movement orchestral fantasies.
In this archival video footage from 2011, Gustavo Dudamel guides the orchestra through refinement of a section in Tchaiovsky's Romeo and Juliet overture. The first Los Angeles Philharmonic performance of this Tchaikovsky piece was in March 1921, nearly a century prior to the LA Phil Live concert for which the orchestra was rehearsing.
This overture was a single-movement piece inspired by Shakespeare's play of the same name. Tchaikovsky also wrote works inspired by The Tempest and Hamlet. The overall design of Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet overture is that of a symphonic tone poem based on three major elements of the Shakespeare story.
In this rehearsal footage, Dudamel focuses on a section roughly 5-1/2 minutes into the piece, bringing particular attention to articulation, tempo, score notations and maximization of clarity between orchestral sections.
The music of Tchaikovsky will be in the spotlight at the Hollywood Bowl as conductor Lionel Bringuier conducts the Los Angeles Philharmonic in performances of Rococo Variations and this Romeo and Juliet overture on July 9, 2015. Get tickets at http://www.hollywoodbowl.com/romeo.
