Gershwin Review

These presentations are invaluable and entertaining to the community. Dudamel is an amazing ambassador of culture and music to the community at large. Mr. Hancock is an icon of contemporary and jazz music. While I enjoy hearing him play anything that he is improvising, was I the only one that thought his interpretation on "Someone To Watch...."was rambling and had little to do with the Gershwinesque aspect of the piece? I also didn't understand why his segment did not include him talking about his own personal prep for the Rhapsody. However, these are small matters compared to the greater good these presentations do. I just wish it was attracting a younger audience. Dudamel rocks!

Laughed and cried. The music was overwhelming. Herbie's Someone to Watch over me was mesmerizing. The classic Rhapsody in Blue never takes you over completely and you just want to jump out of your seat when its over. Dudamel and Hancock....amazing.

Excellent experience. Treated as if we were at the actual event with the audience noise before and after along with the intermission. We don't normally care for Gershwin but the way it was interpreted by these two gave us another perspective on his music. The explanations of the music that Mr Dudamel provided were very enlightening as well as entertaining. We had a great time and look forward to future presentations by the LA Phil.

This is the 2nd time that I have attended an LA Phil live concert broadcast. The concert was phenomenal. Gustavo is probably the greatest conductor of the 21st century. As a musician it is amazing that he memorizes the complete score of each work. The introductions for each piece were helpful and also humorous. I plan on attending more of the LA Phil broadcast in the future. A friend of mine invited me to my first concert last month. More advertising is needed to make the public aware of this wonderful experience.

Gustavo Dudamel and Herbie Hancock were so so so wonderful. We was so thrilled to see Gustavo in rehearsal with the orchestra. The music was wonderful and seeing the event at our local theater was the best...
