Petit Futé's opinion on WALT DISNEY CONCERT HALL

Vintage plate 2020

Like silver sails slamming in the wind, the curved shapes of the sumptuous Walt Disney Concert Hall, the L.A. Philharmonic, have been part of the Downtown landscape since 2003. The building was designed by the star architect Frank Gehry, who first designed it to be made of stone. It was the success of his titanium masterpiece, the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, that pushed him to use steel to create the soft shapes we see today. The auditorium is home to the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra. Its acoustics are renowned worldwide for their clarity and precision, by the great specialist Yasuhisa Toyota, also an acoustical engineer from the Elbe Philharmonic, Hamburg's new concert hall. Classical and contemporary programming is of course in the spotlight, with concerts by the greatest names in symphonic or chamber music and the greatest opera singers, but it also includes jazz, flamenco, world music... Audioguides are available to discover the history and architecture of the Concert Hall (the auditorium is excluded from tours due to rehearsals). The Walt Disney Concert Hall is part of the Music Center's cultural complex. Outside, in the garden, a giant rose-shaped fountain made of Delft porcelain fragments is dedicated to the memory of Lillian Disney, the wife of the famous Walt.

Le visite du Walt Disney Concert Hall vaut le détour, l’architecture du bâtiment est vraiment spectaculaire, très similaire au Guggeheim de Bilbao du même architecte. N’hésitez pas à gravir les marches pour découvrir le petit jardin où il est très agréable de s’y reposer.
Un faux air du musée Guggenheim à Bilbao pour cet auditorium. L'extérieur est splendide mais l'intérieur n'est pas en reste tout d'orange vêtu.
