Dudamel Conducts Beethoven's Eroica CD
Gustavo Dudamel and the Simon Bolivar Orchestra bring their unique energy to one of the summits of the orchestral repertoire - Beethoven s mighty Symphony No.3, the Eroica
Beethoven s third symphony is not only one of his most personal works powerful in both grandeur and pathos but also the source of some of classical music s most instantly recognizable melodies.
The album also includes two of Beethoven s best-loved overtures, Egmont, inspired by Goethe s play, and the ballet, The Creatures of Prometheus.
No longer a youth orchestra , the Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela is a world-class ensemble in its own right, touring the world s great concert halls as ambassadors for their country s unique system of musical education, El Sistema.
The combination of powerful, accessible repertoire, Dudamel s irrepressible charisma and the remarkable story of the SimÃ³n BolÃvar Orchestra make this recording not only desirable for Dudamel fans and those of Beethoven s music, but a must for anyone wishing to discover the power of classical music at its very best.
