8 concert with Gustavo Dudamel

  • Gustavo Dudamel conducts Mozart and Mahler

    Gustavo Dudamel conducts Mozart and Mahler

    The young Gustavo Dudamel is famous for his sparkling energy, and in this concert from 2015 he conducts works that are equally bursting with youthful spirit. First, there’s the Posthorn Serenade by 23-year old Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: jaunty and tight with splendid brass soli. Gustav Mahler, too, was only in his mid-20’s when he composed his First Symphony – a powerful, vernal start to a great career as a composer.

    At his second Waldbühne Concert Gustavo Dudamel marked the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth by conducting two works by Tchaikovsky: his popular fantasy overture Romeo and Juliet and his symphonic fantasy on The Tempest, a work far too infrequently heard. After the interval came a cornerstone of the late Romantic German repertory: Brahms’s First Symphony.

    Gustavo Dudamel conducts Mahler’s Third Symphony

    The press wrote enthusiastically about the “fire and precision” of Gustavo Dudamel’s interpretation of Mahler’s Third Symphony in this concert from June 2014. And it is exactly these qualities that are required to bring out the full wealth of this vast, complex work: from the first movement – the longest Mahler ever wrote – to the warm tones of the hymn-like Finale.

  • Gustavo Dudamel conducts Beethoven, Schubert and Stravinsky

    Gustavo Dudamel conducts Beethoven, Schubert and Stravinsky

    Gustavo Dudamel is acclaimed all over the world as a spirited conductor of passionate music, and in this concert too, he shows himself to be the ideal interpreter of Igor Stravinsky’s fiery and vibrant Suites Nos. 1 and 2. The fact that he is now also a master of the fine shading required for the music of the First Viennese School can be heard in his astutely balanced performance of the fourth symphonies of Ludwig van Beethoven and Franz Schubert.

  • Gustavo Dudamel conducts Strauss and Barber

    Gustavo Dudamel conducts Strauss and Barber

    The Berliner Philharmoniker have a very special relationship with Richard Strauss. Not least, because the composer himself made guest conducting appearances with the orchestra over many years. In this recording, Gustavo Dudamel conducts two Strauss tone poems whose appeal lies in their fire and sophistication: Don Juan and Till Eulenspiegel. Plus there is Samuel Barber’s overwhelmingly poignant Adagio for Strings.

    The musically powerful optimism conveyed in Richard Strauss’s Also sprach Zarathustra is in good hands with a conductor as energetic as Gustavo Dudamel. But there are other colours in this concert, such as in Maurice Ravel’s Ma mere l’oye: fairy tale scenes full of elegance, poetry and wit. Erich Wolfgang Korngold's Violin Concerto also radiates virtuosity and full-bodied Hollywood sound, performed here with Leonidas Kavakos as the soloist.
