When Gustavo Dudamel leads his hometown orchestra, he tends to make a statement. After turning in an idiosyncratic read of Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring,” now they take on the heroics of Beethoven’s Third Symphony. And it’s a long Eroica; the funeral march is a luxurious 17 minutes, in which every detail is milked for sadness and grandeur. It sounds great, even if that means the following scherzo feels out of balance (players can only take it so fast). If less satisfying than Ricardo Chailly’s recent take, Dudamel still oversees many fine moments here. Hear it for the funeral march alone.
