Gustavo Dudamel, designated music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, is acknowledged to be one of the most important conductors of his generation. On October 2009 he conducted the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra at the Disney Concert Hall. On the programme was Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 1 in D major, "Titan" and the world premiere of City Noir, the latest work by Pulitzer Prize for Music winner John Adams.

The Los Angeles Philharmonic is widely regarded as the most contemporary minded, forward thinking, talked about and innovative, venturesome and admired orchestra in America. Dudamel made his U.S. conducting debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl on September 13, 2005. In April 2007, during a guest conducting engagement with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Dudamel was named the LAP's next music director as of the 2009-2010 season, succeeding Esa-Pekka Salonen.
