  1. Dudamel: Mahler 7

    Dudamel: Mahler 7

    Price:
    $20.98
    Conductor: Gustavo Dudamel
    Orchestra: Simon Bólivar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela

    Gustavo Dudamel resumes his survey of the Mahler symphonies with this recording of the rare, mysterious 7th.

    "The 7th is a symphony of everything", says Dudamel, "from chaos to glory, sarcasm to tenderness, from a funeral march to a seductive tango. It is a cosmic symphony of perfect construction and galactic emotional scope."

    It was his triumph at the 2003 Gustav Mahler Conducting Competition in Bamberg that catapulted Gustavo Dudamel to international stardom, and the music of Mahler has remained central not only to his repertoire, but to his entire musical philosophy.

    Over the last decade, Dudamel has grown along with his brothers and sisters from the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela. No longer a band of Sistema Wunderkinder, the Venezuelan orchestra together with its charismatic conductor, has conquered the great festivals and concert halls of the world, energizing audiences and traditional symphonic repertoire through their musical commitment, inexorable sense of rhythm and passion.

  4. Dudamel: Also Sprach Zarathustra

    Dudamel: Also Sprach Zarathustra

    Price:
    $20.98
    Conductor: Gustavo Dudamel
    Orchestra: Berlin Philharmonic

    Also Sprach Zarathustra, once among the less frequently performed Strauss works, now firmly ensconced in the standard repertoire, is a tone poem, i.e., a free-form symphonic piece that either tells a story or, as is the case here, suggests the moods of a literary text. It’s difficult to discern why it should have been less frequently performed than, say, the same composer’s Ein Heldenleben, the two being cut from similarly colorful cloth. Perhaps it’s the association with Friedrich Nietzsche’s knotty philosophical work of the same name that gained Zarathustra, the music, the unwarranted reputation of being “difficult.”

    The composer initially disavowed any connection between his score and Nietzsche beyond being inspired by the book’s poetic imagery and, particularly, its evocative chapter headings, eight of which Strauss employed as non-specific guides in his score.

    Also Sprach Zarathustra was composed in 1896, the year in which Strauss became chief conductor of the Bavarian State Opera in Munich. The city of his birth prized him greatly as a conductor, but the conservative public, and the impresarios serving that public, considered his compositions rather outré. Thus, the premiere was given in Frankfurt, with the composer conducting.

    The fiery debate that swirled around the score when it was new was caused less by the music than by the conflicting programs Strauss proposed at varying times as its subject matter. Before the Frankfurt premiere, he authorized the following shorthand program to be printed:

    “First movement: Sunrise. Man feels the power of God. Andante religioso. But man still longs. He plunges into passion (second movement) and finds no peace. He turns toward science, and tries in vain to solve life’s problems in a fugue (third movement). The agreeable dance tunes sound and he becomes an individual. His soul soars upward while the world sinks far below him.” Was he having us on?

    But that was neither his first (he had earlier leaked hints of a somewhat different program to the German press) nor last word on the subject. Strauss decided finally to put the matter to rest by prefacing the published score with the words of Nietzsche’s opening paragraphs, the “Ode to the Sun,” concluding in the exhortation to the creative spirit: “For too long we have dreamt music, now let us awake. We were nightwalkers. Let us now be daywalkers.” (Nietzsche, it might be remembered, was a composer himself.) The titles of the eight sections that follow the brass- percussion-organ depiction of the sunrise - the movie music - were the only other programmatic clues left by the composer. Learn More
  5. Dudamel Conducts Tchaikovsky CD

    Dudamel Conducts Tchaikovsky CD

    Price:
    $19.98
    Conductor: Gustavo Dudamel
    Orchestra: Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela

    When the most talked about musician in the world (New York Times), and his astonishing orchestra performed this symphony at the 2008 Salzburg Festival, the Times of London wrote: "In Tchaikovsky's allegros. . .you imagined steam rising from the fiddlers' flying fingers. The gorgeously played horn solo in the slow movement was as melancholic as anything in Dostoevsky. . .When these virtuosic Venezuelan youngsters play, the sense of the New World remaking, refreshing and rescuing the Old is overwhelming."

  10. Dudamel Conducts Stravinsky and Revueltas CD

    Dudamel Conducts Stravinsky and Revueltas CD

    Price:
    $21.98
    Conductor: Gustavo Dudamel
    Orchestra: Simon Bólivar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela

    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.
