Overview

It's still too early in Gustavo Dudamel's career to put out a greatest-hits collection, yet he has released enough high-profile albums on Deutsche Grammophon to warrant a generous sampler. To give listeners a clear idea of this critically acclaimed conductor's range and versatility, short pieces and movements from larger works have been selected from seven CDs to highlight his repertoire on Discoveries. From Beethoven to Bernstein, with touchstones along the way by Tchaikovsky, Bruckner, Mahler, Stravinsky, Revueltas, and others, this compilation demonstrates Dudamel's broad musical tastes and boundless enthusiasm for showstopping orchestral works. Conducting the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela, the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, the Berlin Philharmonic, and the Vienna Philharmonic, he shows his exceptional aptitude for symphonic music, ballets, and tone poems, and delivers the music with fiery energy and drama.
