A highlight of the London Symphony Chorus’s year will be this concert in which Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic complete their 2018 residency at the Barbican with two pieces that are full of promise and expectation.
The concert opens with Bernstein’s “Chichester Psalms”. This work has been described as both affirmative and serene, as well as a joy to perform. Another Ode to Joy, the evening concludes with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, which promises to be a glorious finale to the residency of the orchestra in collaboration with the LSC prior to a performance at the Philharmonie in Paris the following weekend.
