Special Features


Editorial Reviews

This DVD portrays Gustavo Dudamel's thrilling debut at the Salzburg Festival in 2008 recorded live in the heat of the moment at the Grosses Festspielhaus. This compelling concert features Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, orchestrated in psychedelic colors by Ravel, eliciting rousing playing from Dudamel's young instrumentalists. For the Beethoven's Triple Concerto, Dudamel assembles the classical dream team including pianist Martha Argerich, violinist Renaud Capuçon and cellist Gautier Capuçon who bring emotionality to one of Beethoven's most emotionally naked compositions. DVD EXTRAS: Die Schule des Hörens--master classes in listening led by Dudamel, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, and the SBYOV as given at the 2008 Salzburg Festival.

No need to describe the undescribable alchemy that works its way through this concert - the gifted and exhilarating Dudamel, the piano goddess Argerich and the near-mystical union of the brilliant Capuçon brothers,fired up by the enthusiastic and talented Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra. This true dream team sets about presenting Beethoven's Triple Concerto through a rare and moving process that has to be seen and heard to be believed.

If I sound over-enthusiastic, I am to be forgiven once you watch this DVD from the Salzburg Festival, where the audience seems about to rush on stage
during the applause and embrace all the musicians the way the four principals embrace each other. The Mussorgsky, in the hands of these devoted young musicians, never sounded more colourful - and I'm as picky as anyone. Again, I must let the presentation in Dudamel's hands speak for itself to every individual lucky enough to see this film.

The musical project of Venezuela, "El sistema" (See Paul Smaczny's "El Sistema", Arvelo's "Tocar y Luchar" and Failoni's "L'altra voce della musica"), the highly successful result of visionary José Antonio Abreu's dream to rescue street children through the creation of youth orchestras, has given us not only Gustavo Dudamel - now director of the Los Angeles symphony, but an enormous wave of hope throughout the world...and all through the power of classical music. If Maestro Abreu does not receive the Nobel Prize for his humanitarian work, I'll be extremely sad,
along with thousands...including, I'm sure, Sir Simon Rattle, Claudio Abbado, Daniel Barenboim and Placido Domingo who've worked closely with him over the years. If you've not heard of the project, you'll find clips on YouTube and Ted.com.

If you are fan of Gustavo Dudamel and his outstanding potentiality of very possibly becoming one of the greatest conductors of all times, then THIS particular remarkable DVD will indeed support that potential conclusion.

If ever their was a LEGITIMATE candidate for the Nobel Peace prize, it would have to be:

José Antonio Abreu,

He is a Venezuelan economist, who conceived and founded back in 1975 (long before the Hugo Chavez political upheaval existed) the "National Network of Youth and Children's Orchestras of Venezuela",for the purpose of reducing poverty, the undereducated and above all,the lack of INITIATIVE to hundreds of Venezuelan youths. He gave them the ever elusive INCENTIVE, by introducing them in participating and becoming directly involved in the creation (playing) of classical music and also by furnishing the musical instruments for doing so. He created INCENTIVE and MOTIVATION.

It also was also the support of the parents, that help to make the program such a hugh success.

It was from this remarkable benevolent program that Gustavo Dudamel found his destiny, along with hundreds of other Venezuelan youths and THIS remarkable DVD will certainly bear that out.

This remarkable youth orientated program is finding its way into other countries and I hope that includes the U.S.A.

This is a OUTSTANDING DVD for anyone that likes classical music or has never heard or seen a classical music prefromance.

I M P O R T A N T! THIS DVD is especially desirable for ANY young person who shows an interest in music, especially in any musical instrument.

Format: DVD
Even for those plucky naysayers who are skeptical of the impact young Gustavo Dudamel is making not only in his new home with the Los Angeles Philharmonic but in the tenor of classical music around the world, this DVD of the maestro conducting his Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra in performances of the Mussorgsky/Ravel 'Pictures at an Exhibition' and a radiant performance of Beethoven's Triple Concerto with Martha Argerich and Renard and Gautier Capucon as soloists will erase all doubts of the exciting musicality that emanates from this gifted wunderkind. The sound reproduction of the DVD is excellent and the manner in which the cinematographers have captured both the wholly involved conductor and performers immersed in this music is excellent.

But there are two aspects of this recorded live performance that are especially noteworthy. One, the concert in from the usually somewhat staid Salzburg Music Fetival in 2008, and witnessing the furor of reaction to Dudamel borders on adulation. It is thrilling to see audiences respond so vocally and viscerally to a performance. And two, the portion of the DVD that is called 'School of Listening' - moments of verbal intruction and interplay with his orchestra as they prepare for a performance of Mahler's First Symphony. Even as a speaker Dudamel reaches out to his compatriots with selfless enthusiasm and some very fine ideas about Mahler that should result in lessons for us all.

If Dudamel can recreate the magic of inspiring the youth of this country to reach for dreams the way he has influenced the youth of Venezuela, then the future of Classical music is secure. This is a delightful and enriching DVD. Grady Harp, October 09
