Hollywood Bowl Classical Tuesday – Gustavo Dudamel conducts Mozart!

July 19, 2011 Classical, Dinner, Leisure, Living, Music No Comments

Finally got to see Gustavo Dudamel conduct the LA Philharmonic, and what a show! Dudamel was so full of expression; it was great. In fact, I caught myself smiling a few times.

What made this concert extra special though, was that we were also graced with the presence of Gil Shaham, who performed one of my favorite Mozart songs, the Violin Concerto No. 5.

Gil Shaham banging his 1699 Stradivarius on the big screen.

Here’s a clip of Gil Shaham performing Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5 with the Youtube Symphony. I loved his expressions.

This is the actual view from our seats, in section G2. I was really gunning for the seats in the Pool Circle but they (as well as the Garden and Terrace boxes, and even Super Seats) sold out fast! It was a packed show.

You know Hollywood Bowl is pretty much synonymous with Picnic, right? Well, this time, I brought a bunch of sandwiches, quartered, from Blue Table. From left to right: Ellen’s Special (turkey, ham, goat cheese, fig-onion jam, & garlic aioli ), Prosciutto and Burrata (with basil, tomato & olive oil), Roast Turkey Breast (with brie, arugula, roasted red peppers, & sun-dried tomato aioli), Roast Beef Tenderloin (with caramelized onions, goat cheese, arugula, & dijon aioli), and another Ellen’s Special.

Washed it down with Veuve champagne and fresh blackberries. Yum.
