For the last few years, the hottest name in conducting has been Gustavo Dudamel, whose meteoric rise has made him a star attraction on three continents. Music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic since 2009, when he succeeded Esa-Pekka Salonen, the dynamic young Venezuelan brings his orchestra to Avery Fisher Hall for two nights as part of Lincoln Center’s “Great Performers” series. The opening program will give New York its first look at the latest oratorio from the brilliant American composer John Adams, The Gospel According to the Other Mary. Noted opera director Peter Sellers provides the staging. The orchestra’s second program is a more predictable evening of Vivier, Debussy, and Stravinsky, again with Dudamel on the podium. - Sylviane Gold
