Dudamel Discoveries is the perfect compilation album and souvenir release to introduce listeners to the wonderful music of Dudamel and the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela! This album will be the perfect compilation to help reach out to a broader audience, offering them a unique way to experience Dudamel and the genre of classical music. With a mix of European and Latin influence, this recording will attract the general public, target a casual classical listener, and introduce them to Dudamel's other recordings and concert activities during the 2009/2010 season. Gustavo Dudamel, acclaimed worldwide as one of the most exciting and compelling conductors of our time, will begin his tenure as Music Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic this October 2009.
Dudamel and the orchestra’s performance of the 1st movement of the Beethoven Symphony 5 is the equal of the finest world-class adult orchestras. They play with great precision and a near-mature orchestral sonority. Symphony No. 7’s Allegretto goes similarly well. Even more impressive was Dudamel’s interpretations of the two movements which confirm earlier suspicions of a coming conducting giant moving through his formative years. I kept thinking of Kleiber’s Beethoven 5 as I listened to Dudamel’s. Movements from Mahler’s and Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphonies are both sublimely interpreted and performed. The orchestra already proved their absolute competence in Latin American music several times in the past. They underscore it here.
This is a testament to what young musicians can accomplish with proper commitment, leadership, and support. Moreover, their performances are not just great for a youth orchestra. These are great performances for ANY orchestra. It would be no surprise if Dudamel grew to one of the greatest conductors ever to move a baton. The sound is up to the quality of what it conveys. This is another very special offering by these young Venezuelan musicians and easily rates MY VERY HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!!!

For those like me, who are disgusted about the current state of affairs in music and have time to indulge my verbosity, you can read further comments about the issues this youth orchestra raise below…
Right now, every high school band and orchestra teacher must be wondering HOW? I think a major part of the answer is our society's decision to relegate cultural education to the back room - if any room at all - so science and math scores of our youth can crawl back out of the gutter. I hope that Dudamel's and others' work with the Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela may enlighten our decision-makers as to the necessity of culture in our declining society. Folks, the problem isn't that our kids aren't smart or talented. It isn’t that our math, science, music, art, and drama teachers aren’t competent and committed. Our problem is the complete bankruptcy of motivation, sense of personal responsibility, satisfaction derived from commitment, respect and consideration for others, and basic ethics. We have made a sense of entitlement too easy to satisfy. It sickens and frightens me that because of this bankruptcy, our arts have taken such a critical hit. I will leave it to social scientists and historians to elucidate the causes of this bankruptcy. For now, at least, we music lovers must keep sounding the alarm and continue to look for ways to support culture in a society that seems determined to devastate it.
