Antonin Dvořák’s explosive Symphony No. 7, together with No. 8 and No. 9 , represent Dvořák at his best, and they each reveal a somewhat different aspect of his personality. No. 7 is the most ambitious in structure, and the most consciously international in its message. The Dvořák specialist John Clapham writes that "without doubt" the No. 7 "must surely be Dvořák's greatest symphony" .

The program begins with Esa-Pekka Salonen’s mesmerizing Violin Concerto, performed by our internationally acclaimed concertmaster Nigel Armstrong. In this concerto, commissioned by the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the end of his tenure, Salonen tries to sum up everything that he has learned as the music director of the orchestra. It won the Grawemeyer award for composition in 2012.
