Overview

The album everyone has been waiting for! Gustavo Dudamel and his Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela have stunned audiences worldwide with their explosive Latin-American showpieces. Now this experience has been captured on Fiesta, a unique album that no other conductor or orchestra in the world could deliver.

The recording captures the passion and excitement of such contrasting showpieces as the rhythmically driven "Sensemayá" of Revueltas, the expansively luscious Danzón No. 2 of Marquez, the vibrant ballet suite "Estancia" by Ginastera, and the irresistible high spirits of their signature encore, Bernstein's Mambo from West Side Story. -- From the Label

Editorial Reviews

New York Times - Steve Smith
An appealing mix of Latin American works.... The Simón Bolívar players match all comers in finesse and power, and outdo all in sheer exuberance.... The youth orchestra plays with all the style and precision of a professional institution.
Gramophone - James Inverne
[August 2008 CD of the Month] Here is confirmation of a pulsating talent and, perhaps, a glimpse of the future. Dudamel's charisma beats through every bar of this scintillating survey of Latin American music.
The Guardian - Andrew Clements
[The recording] captures the sheer joy and panache of their music-making.... Dudamel has patented his own unique brand of music-making that is very special indeed.
