Editorial Reviews

Gustavo Dudamel's two full-frontal force orchestral pieces elicit high octane playing from his Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela. Both Stravinsky's Le Sacre du Printemps and Revueltas's La noche de los Mayas are revealed as models of revolutionary music making. In Le Sacre du Printemps, Stravinsky transformed painter Nicholas Roerich's fleeting vision of a pagan ritual in which a young girl dances herself to death as a sacrifice to the god of Spring into a musical simulation of barbaric primality. La noche de los Mayas, originally scored for a 1939 film, is one of Mexico's musical treasures. This concert suite, edited by Jos Ives Limantour, dating to 1961, evokes a mystical lost world.

This is a fine addition to my CD collection.
Very Picky
I listen to this though and think, "OH MY LORD, that is what Stravinsky wanted in his dreams RHYTHMICALLY!!!! RHYTHMICALLY!"

So many commercial releases are all about hype and Dudamel has been hyped more than any conductor since Bernstein obviously, or Karajan. He is clearly galvanizing and inspiring to the orchestras he conducts. I work with many New York Philharmonic players regularly and to a person they speak of him in hallowed tones. Still, I cast a jaundiced eye on these things usually. This release would prove me wrong. It is remarkable and mainly for one reason. R H Y T H M!!!!! You could scarcely ever hope to get a better account of this piece than the Esa Pekka Salonen traversal a few years back with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. That sounded so good and they had played the piece a thousand times in the years prior to the Disney Hall recording. The orchestra was tight and seemed to play the score as if it was in their bones. I listen to this though and think, "OH MY LORD, that is what Stravinsky wanted in his dreams RHYTHMICALLY!!!! RHYTHMICALLY!" The engineering is odd at times with classic DG highlighting of certain instruments to heighten the effect of this or that section to the detriment of the overall balance. The rhythm though is really incredible. Everyone should hear this Sacrificial Dance. Has it ever sounded inevitable??? Anyone who has ever heard it assumes this fact, "Stravinsky wants you off your guard. He wants to keep jabbing at us rhythmically. You must not be able to get it in your head. The accents must always surprise and confound." Well.....do you think he ever wanted it to swing and feel in the groove and tight as a drum in all its asymmetry????" Maybe not, but if you want to hear a Sacrificial Dance that sounds as together as the Atomic Count Basie or the New York Phil playing Symphonic Dances from West Side Story, then buy this record. I still can't get over it.Read more ›

Okay, so.. ah, um ... yes, ... I'm a rabid fan of rising young star conductor Gustavo Dudamel. Yet...

I've so far felt that his recordings showed high promise without really leaving me all that deeply touched, satiated with energy and/or insight, or musically overwhelmed. I began to take it for granted that, well, maybe: Dudamel is one of those artists in the making whose live concerts offer something that is quite difficult to capture in most recording sessions, even sometimes in live concert recording sessions. I've enjoyed Dudamel's discs - who can spin any of those releases without nodding in happy approval of the Simon Bolivar Youth Symphony Orchestra? Still, not one of the releases to date grabbed such hold of me that I knew that disc was a slam dunk lasting keeper.

Now, we've arrived. Put the praiseful commentaries up in neon lights, soundtracked by megaphoned audiences applauding. This disc really convinces me. I take it as, at least the first, earliest high pinnacles of what now comes across like a boundless musical enthusiasm - from conductor and from youth orchestra. Plus, that enthusiasm sounds here to be matched to some impactful realization of sheer musical understanding. The Rite of Spring gives off a heady sense that mountain climbing and rock climbing may have much more in common with music making than we ordinarily credit, when we are opposing arts to sports. Le Sacre du Printemps, an extreme sport?

Let's start with obvious comparisons. I cannot imagine any youth orchestra, anywhere in the world, who would not be plenty happy to have had a widely distributed master tape that captured a similarly compelling-energized recorded reading of either Stravinsky's Le Sacre du Printemps or Revueltas' La Noche de las Mayas.

Format: Audio CD
This is the kind of CD that makes you rub your ears. These are kids from the lowest slums of Caracas, some of them as young as twelve. They have no right to sound this accomplished, and it's a wonder that professional musicians don't hide their heads in shame. I'm only half joking. However much is owed to the microphones, the Simon Bolivar Youth Orch. delivers a Rite of Spring that stands comparison with the best. Dudamel's reading is as energized and violently exultant as my old standard, Leonard Bernstein with the NY Phil. Except for the eerie opening solo from the bassoon and the hushed interlude before the maiden dances herself to death, every bar is hair-raising.

Up to now, I have been guilty of asking "what have you done for me lately?" in regards to Dudamel. We are past the wunderkind stage -- well, not quite -- and as the dust settles from the hype tornado, one wonders if brash exuberance will mature into something finer. Now that I've heard twenty or so concerts from him online, I know that Dudamel has both a charismatic and a callow side. Here, the two meld. This isn't a reflective or thoughtful Le sacre. It's Le sacre as performed by the Broadway cast of "Stomp!" Not that thoughtful is a completley desirable way to approach Stravinsky's barbaric masterpiece. Better to say that Dudamel has found his own style, departing from Boulez'a analystical disseciton, the composer's razor-sharp frigidity, and Maazel's virtuosity for its own sake. Dudamel feels the score viscerally, and you feel him.

Dudamel has made a crusade out of promoting the music of Mexico and South America. Here we get a different reworking of primitivism from Silvestre Revueltas, the visionary Mexican modernist who died just short of his forty-first birthday in 1940.
