Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic pay tribute to one of the most prolific American artists of his era, showcasing Duke Ellington’s range from classic songs to symphonic compositions.
Duke Ellington was the most important composer in the history of jazz as well as being a bandleader who held his large group together continuously for almost 50 years. The two aspects of his career were related; Ellington used his band as a musical laboratory for his new compositions and shaped his writing specifically to showcase the talents of his bandmembers, many of whom remained with him for long periods. Ellington also wrote film scores and stage musicals, and several of his instrumental works were adapted into songs that became standards. In addition to touring year in and year out, he recorded extensively, resulting in a gigantic body of work that was still being assessed a quarter century after his death.
Don't miss this amazing tribute to an amazing musician!
