Product description

Review

Starred Review. This passionate and inspiring story should be read by all those interested in music education, community building, and advocacy for the disadvantaged. An essential purchase. --Publisher's Weekly

...a combination of plentiful engaging interview material and an evocative sense of place/event...Tunstall has a keen eye for descriptive detail... --Classical Music

This is a fascinating study of what's possible for a movement very much in its infancy over here. ----Inverness Courier

From the Inside Flap

When Gustavo Dudamel ascended the podium at the Hollywood Bowl for his inaugural concert as conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, he captivated the hearts of his audience, just as he had the minds of music critics. In Changing Lives, the maestro's story becomes the entry point to El Sistema, the programme that nurtured his talent under the mentorship of its founder, Jose Antonio Abreu. What began in Venezuela has reached children in cities around the world. The goal of El Sistema is unwavering: to rescue children from the depredations of poverty, through music. Part history, part reportage, this book shows how arts education can effect positive social change. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
