They get sentimental easily over at Disney Hall, and tonight the L.A. Phil celebrates the 10th birthday of the house organ known as Hurricane Mama, a 6,134-pipe gargantuan whose long arms sprout like vines within the woodwork thicket of Frank Gehry's little shack. Conductor Gustavo Dudamel invites bad-boy organist Cameron Carpenter to go wild on Mama with the keyboardist's solo arrangement of Alexander Scriabin's Sonata No. 4, as well as Camille Saint-Saens' Third Symphony. In between, the L.A. Phil proffers the world premiere of Stephen Hartke's Symphony No. 4, which was commissioned by the orchestra.
