After spending the summer grazing in the hills of Hollywood, L.A. Philharmonic migrates to its fall home, Walt Disney Concert Hall, to open its new season tonight. Out in the wilds above Hollywood, the orchestra had to contend with such unnatural predators as low-flying helicopters and the endless refrain of wine bottles tumbling down the Bowl's concrete steps, but there are no such distractions in L.A. Phil's acoustically superior Disney Hall habitat. Back in July, conductor Gustavo Dudamel reveled in George Gershwin's rhapsodic instrumental melodies with the sizzling pianist Yuja Wang, but this evening he revives the great American composer's songs with stellar Broadway vocalists Megan Hilty and Brian Stokes Mitchell in a jazz-minded program that also includes tunes by Cole Porter and Duke Ellington.
