As LA prepares for Bienvenido Gustavo at the Hollywood Bowl, Off-Ramp host John Rabe talks with LA Times music critic Mark Swed about Gustavo Dudamel's upcoming career as maestro of the LA Philharmonic. Mark says, "Give Gustavo some room to breathe!"

The Saturday night concert by the LA Phil under Dudamel, with a chorus of 200, was followed by an encore, captured by an exuberant person way up in the Bowl.
