Photo credit: Venezuelanrepoprt.comThe concerts by the young Venezuelan conductor Gustavo Dudamel are always full of surprises. This is a reason why his London fan base, as well as the Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra’s (SBYO), is always increasing.This time around, at the BBC Proms 2011, the musicians didn’t turn into their Venezuelan flag jumpers, but instead they thrilled the public with the superb coordination between the orchestra and the National Youth Choir of Great Britain, as well as the impeccable conduction of metals and other instruments by Dudamel, giving the impression at times that the sounds would come from various spots of the theatre, away from the stage of the Royal Albert Hall.In a sell-out concert, over 5,000 people rejoiced from the excellent musical performance given by more than 350 people among musicians from the orchestra, members of the choir, Dudamel and the leading soprano and mezzo-soprano Miah Persson and Anna Larsson. All of them combined to produce a brilliant execution of Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 in C minor, ‘Resurrection’.At the end of the concert, the public gave the musicians a standing ovation. They even went further and stomped their feet on the ground as a way to complement the performers. In fact, even Mr. Mike Brewer, chorus-master of the National Youth Choir Orchestra of Great Britain, went to the stage to receive, along with Dudamel and the rest of the group, a very long lasting round of applause.From here, Dudamel and the SBYO will go to Turkey to conclude their European tour, which began last week in Austria.Press ReleseEmbassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in the Commonwealth of Dominica
