Dudamel leads encore performances of Ortiz’ spiritual Kauyumari, which was premiered in the LA Phil’s 2021 return to Walt Disney Concert Hall, and Márquez’ Fandango, a violin concerto inspired by the composer’s love of the dance music he grew up listening to in Sonora with new “melodies that sound old and are worth keeping” according to the Los Angeles Times’ review of its 2021 world premiere at the Hollywood Bowl. Completing the concert, Aaron Copland’s stirring Third Symphony that is built in part on his immortal Fanfare for the Common Man.
