Review: Zubin Mehta re-creates a night 50 years ago
Zubin Mehta was not in exactly unfamiliar circumstances, either standing in front of the Los Angeles Philharmonic on Thursday night or in receiving honors. He first faced this orchestra more than half a century ago as a 24-year-old guest conductor. The Walt Disney Concert Hall program celebrated the 50th anniversary of his first program, on Nov. 15, 1962, as music director of the L.A. Phil, which he headed for 16 seasons.
