5.0 out of 5 stars inspirational youthful talent, 10 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live from Salzburg - Gustavo Dudamel and the Simon Bolivar Orchestra [DVD] [NTSC] [Region 0] [2009] (DVD)
Gustavo Dudamel and his orchestra of young disciples are an inspiration to the world of classical music and just seem to always blow away the cobwebs from what ever regular repertoire piece they attack. Maybe the polish and refinement arent always up to the standard that many of the old school insist on but they keep good music alive as we slip further away from the great era of these masterpieces. You can enjoy this concert from two perspectives. One for the music and performance itself and secondly to enjoy the great ammount of pride as well as pleasure on the face of each and everyone of these young talented musicians. The top line soloists in the Beethoven concerto are excellently matched by their supporting orchestra and conductor which blend perfectly in a concerto that can sometimes seem like a piano trio with an orchestral accompaniment. The Mussorgsky does not leave a corner or fold of the score orchestrated by Ravel unexplored and its a wonder Dudamel is not on his knees by the final chords. The two encores just build on the excitement with the standard Austrian followed by their own touch of latin vibrancy ending in party mood.
The accompanying workshop to Mahlers first is even more enjoyable and Dudamels explanations and points of view just make you want to see more of the same.You can really feel his pasion for conducting in his explanations of different sections. Please,please,please DG, more of this type of prgramme from these latin kids off the block.Love it!
