Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic scored rave reviews for their performances of Antonín Dvořák's masterful final three symphonies in February 2020. Hailed as 'a revelation' by the Los Angeles Times, their interpretations were recorded live at Walt Disney Concert Hall by Deutsche Grammophon for release as a digital album – the follow-up to the artists' Grammy Award-winning recording of Mahler's Symphony No 8. Available in Dolby Atmos, Antonín Dvořák: Symphonies Nos 7-9 captures the power and intensity of Dudamel's vision of three of the greatest works in the symphonic repertoire.
