Superb - The “Sistema” at work !
The Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra and the “Sistema” that created it and the tens of thousands of Venezuelan musicians in the past 3 decades, comes to life and proves yet again that Venezuelan musicians are world class, in this superb performance of Beethoven’s Symphonies Nos. 5 and (my favorite) 7.
Excellent rendering of Beethoven!
This is how Beethoven - especially the Fifth - should be played: full of exuberance and energy…a great job, and I think Ludwig himself would have loved it!
And don’t let the name “Youth Orchestra” fool you - these are world-class players that combine youthful vigor & freshness with discipline…another masterful performance from Mr. Dudamel. I caught this performance of the Fifth Symphony on my local classical station, and that - combined with my amazement with Mr. Dudamel’s Verdi Requiem on PBS, decided it was a “must have” and I am not disappointed. Count me in as a newly-minted Dudamel fan!
