Composer John Corigliano and Gustavo Dudamel offstage after Symphony No. 1.
The standing ovation following the LA Phil's Sunday afternoon concert was not the orchestra's first 2014 tour triumph, but it was our first (so far!) at New York's City's hallowed Lincoln Center.
As part of that great institution's "Great Performers" series, Gustavo Dudamel led the LA Phil in another moving performance of John Corigliano's First Symphony and a masterfully restrained take on Tchaikovsky's Fifth. (Cue the thundering applause.)
Composer John Corigliano was in attendance, lending the evening an especially significant air. Other devoted friends representing the LA Phil on the East Coast included Kiki and David Gindler, who held a post-concert reception for all orchestra members and guests at Lincoln Center's Kaplan Rooftop.

Tonight we're ready to Rach with the incomparable Yuja Wang, a bit of Brahms and the new composition Blow bright by Daníel Bjarnason, well-known for his work with Icelandic supergroup Sigur Rós. Check out tonight's program and take a peek at Dudamel and Wang rehearsing Rachmaninoff's Third with the orchestra. (Hint: You will want to clap!)
