The Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela

Gustavo Dudamel

Fri 02.9. 19:00

The visit of Gustavo Dudamel and the Simón Bolívar youth orchestra was the highlight of the 2008 Helsinki Festival. Now, the audience has the opportunity to return and hear how the young musicians have grown in tandem with the orchestra. The audience is in for a joyous musical celebration.

Founded 40 years ago, Venezuela’s free classical music education programme, El Sistema, has already taken hundreds of thousands of children and adolescents off the streets. Dudamel and the Simón Bolívar orchestra are the most famous result of the programme.

Dudamel’s star status has remained bright for well over a decade – he has conducted, for example, the title and credit music for the latest Star Wars film. Dudamel is the current Music Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and his more-than-15-year journey with the Simón Bolívar orchestra continues.

The Helsinki Music Centre’s concert opens with the music of Latin America: the evening begins with Venezuelan Paul Desenne’s work inspired by baroque and Caribbean music and Heitor Villa-Lobos’ Bachianas brasileiras combining Brazilian music with Bach. After the intermission, the orchestra gets sentimental with the music of Maurice Ravel.

Programme:

Paul Desenne: Hipnosis Mariposa
Heitor Villa-Lobos: Bachianas brasileiras no. 2

Maurice Ravel: Daphnis et Chloé, suite no. 2
Maurice Ravel: La valse
