Dudamel: Tchaikovsky & Shakespeare CD
The same program as March 13th's LA LIVE!
Gustavo's new recording with the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela.
Gustavo Dudamel, the "energetic ambassador for classical music" (Vanity Fair), conducts symphonic pieces derived from Shakespeare as reimagined in music by Tchaikovsky.
Unlike the fantasy overture, Romeo and Juliet, and The Tempest, which are program pieces, Hamlet is more mysterious and less literal in the way its thematic material is developed. All three are luminously beautiful.
In every case, Dudamel elicits the most appropriate interpretations imaginable from his electrifying Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra. He conclusively demonstrates that in addition to being able to generate excitement, he is a sophisticated musical thinker.
