Product Description

BBC Review

The Rite of Spring famously caused a riot at its 1913 premiere. Not too many pieces can claim that sort of immediate impact on the public, but the heart of it is not in anarchy–it is in youth, energy and change. These aspects of Stravinsky's landmark in 20th century composition are key to its successful performance and, in theory, there is no better kind of orchestra to tackle its spring-like explosions than one made up of blossoming youths. Furthermore, there's no better youth orchestra suited to it than the Simón Bolívar Youth Orcherstra of Venezuela. Over the the years, the product of a rigourous national cultural effort has become something cherished by the rest of the world too, the legacy of 'El Sistema' firmly etched into music's history books.

True, under the infectious leadership of Gustavo Dudamel (no longer quite such a dead ringer for Carlos Valderrama), the verve of these performers is quite incredible. But can they convincingly handle The Rite, with its batty accelarations and daringly skewed rhythmic idiosyncracies? Happily, the answer is resoundingly positive throughout. Alongside the gusto and through the joie de vivre of this orchestra, they are truly microscopic in their detail.

Early on, the Danses des adolescentes seems almost too obvious an example of the youthful exuberance you'd expect, but it truly does reverberate something inescapably childish in its brashness. Youthful players will always be disposed to the more bombastic sections of brass and percussion (the novelty of making a ruddy big noise is yet to wear off), but it is wonderful to hear that as much attention has been paid to the nimble sections. The trumpets' flutter-tonguing during Action rituelle des ancetres is especially worm-like, almost invasive, and so confident. The SBYOV are, if nothing else, eternally fixated on making the tiniest gesture as effective as it can be.

Now that the orchestra and their flamboyant artistic director have recorded some truly seminal works in their latest and most noteworthy incarnation (try their Mahler 5 if you have a spare afternoon), and they can now add The Rite of Spring to them. They've tacked on a super rendition of Mexican composer Silvestre Revueltas' quixotic La Noche De Los Mayas too, but all talk will be of how the Simón Bolívar Youth Orcherstra of Venezuela conquered Stravinsky's Rite. What next? --Daniel Ross

4.0 out of 5 stars Energy! 2 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD
The wow on this recording is how they play the Revueltas music. Energy, eruption, timing - all with a technical skill that is just superb!
The Stravinskij music is handled with nothing less. Although it for me doesn't surpass the Bernstein treatment of it. The Bernstein version was more of a collective immediate force. Here the focus seems to be on clarity and perfection of details. It gives a somewhat different experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dynamic range, rhythmic vigour & deep commitment 20 July 2010
Format:Audio CD
Gustavo Dudamel with his Simon Bolivar players must be what Stravinsky was looking for when he wrote his Rite and the Revueltas. I bought the CD expecting energy and rhythm - but the players' continuing success is giving them technical skills that have me playing and re-playing the disc. Great stuff!

4.0 out of 5 stars Rite of Spring/La Noche de los Mayas 31 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had never before heard the Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela but I must say that their performances brought out every colour, every detail of the pieces on this CD: they could rival any of the major international orchestras.
The Rite of Spring is one of my favourite listening experiences, and this version is different from any other that I have heard, a quite different interpretation that makes an old friend seem fresh and new.
I had no experience of the composer, Revueltos, but I must say that I shall be looking for more of his music in future. I found La Noche de los Mayas simply splendid.
Overall wonderful and thoroughly recommended.
