Dudamel - Beethoven's 5th and Mahler's 5th

Recommended Posts

Watched Dudamel and the Venezuelan Orchestra do Beethoven's 5th and Wagner at Royal Festival Hall day before, and do Mahler's 5th yesterday. Huge and large scale orchestra, extremely lively and energetic. Dudamel such a contrast to John Gardiner, who did B's 5th with a small period orchestra

Yes, the Mahler last night was just superb, got a long standing ovation.

Have to say though that they're not quite so much fun now that they are the Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra and not the Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra.
