This first of Gustavo Dudamel’s two weeks of Philharmonic concerts includes Dvořák’s most beloved symphony, the Ninth, his “postcard” from the New World — a cascade of beguiling melodies, majestic horn calls, and an expression of homesickness for his native Bohemia. Plus, Ives’s brief and fascinating “mini-philosophy-lesson” about the universe and man’s eternal search for meaning.
