L.A. Phil lays out its 2015-16 season at Disney Hall

The Los Angeles Philharmonic and conductor Gustavo Dudamel will start their 2015-16 season at Walt Disney Concert Hall by rolling over Beethoven's symphonic oeuvre as thoroughly and massively as Chuck Berry or anyone else could wish. The "Immortal Beethoven" festival, Oct. 1-13, will deploy the combined heft of the Phil and the other group Dudamel leads, the Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela. Each will handle four of the nine Beethoven symphonies separately, then join for Symphony No. 9, bringing to bear a combined force of about 300 musicians.
