The first silmul­cast of the second 'LA Phil LIVE' sea­son began Oct. 9 with Du­damel con­duct­ing an all-Mendels­sohn pro­gram of the "Hebrides" Over­ture and the "Scot­tish" Sym­phony, as well as the Vi­ol­in Con­certo with Dutch so­loist Jan­ine Jansen, at Walt Dis­ney Con­cert Hall.

Gust­avo Du­damel plays dual roles as con­duct­or and host of the broad­cast. The pro­gram show­cases three of the com­poser’s most evoc­at­ive and ro­mantic works: the vividly de­script­ive Hebrides Over­ture and the “Scot­tish” Sym­phony - both of which are mu­sic­al souven­irs of Mendels­sohn’s 1829 va­ca­tion in Scot­land and the Hebrides is­lands - as well as his pas­sion­ate Vi­ol­in Con­certo.
Take two in­vig­or­at­ing mu­sic­al souven­irs of Mendels­sohn’s travels; add his glor­i­ous con­certo, with its ec­stat­ic out­pour­ing of Ro­mantic ar­dor and melody. Re­dis­cov­er just why this be­loved com­poser is a fa­vor­ite of audi­ences and mu­si­cians alike.
