Incredible High School Musicians From Venezuela! Led by Gustavo Dudamel

The Teresa Carreño Youth Orchestra contains the best high school musicians from Venezuela's life-changing music program, El Sistema. Led here by Gustavo Dudamel, they play Shostakovich's Symphony No. 10, 2nd movement, and Arturo Márquez' Danzón No. 2.

It was truly pleasurable... Thanks for bringing this to our attention Renegade eye... :)
PS: TED is amazing.... I watched a documentary on this amazing get together ever year and was truly mesmerized... There are some very interesting individuals out there and TED brings all these interesting people together. :)

The Soviet system sure can crank out the culture. I'm sure the Venezuelans will field a world class Olympic team in 2012 as well. After all, one needs to set high goals and standards for the new Bolivarian man. ;-)

They are definitely talented young men and women

Daniel H-G: They are tremendous. The adult group is world reknown as well.

Nevin: I subscribe to TED at Youtube. Almost weekly they have a video.

FJ: Too bad you're wrong.

Che had ideas like that, Chavez doesn't think about that.

Jams: They are lucky to have such training.

Chavez doesn't think about that? Fidel did, and Fidel is like Hugo's older brother.

I finally listened to it with Firefox, rather than Chrome, which is better for videos but not worth a shit for anything else.

This kind of draws you in, doesn't it? Flawless. World class. I've listened to just enough classical music to know these kids can stand alongside anybody.

The end was a letdown to me, but this was only because Gustavo's expression led me to expect more.

Otherwise, great performance, though I would love me some more cowbell.

You could be right though, Ren. Chavez wasn't smart enough to start a program like this... it got it's start LONG before Chavez ever came to power and started glomming all the credit...

Looks like Chavez didn't put his thumbprints on this program with the oficialista stamp until 2007 under the Mision Musica rubric

Yes, Fidel and Hugo are friends. Says more about you Farm Boy than Hugo if you think friends cannot have different ideas - ie Hugo is not just carbon copying Fidel's ideas.

Our late - and much loved - Prime Minster Pierre Trudeau, was also a friend of Castro's and we remain just about as corporatist an economy as the USA.

I stand corrected, Gambone. Unlike Fidel, perhaps Hugo truly is a populist.

Frank Partisan said...

FJ: Chavez and Castro are apples and oranges. Chavez is a social democrat and Castro is a Marxist-Leninist. That is how Chavez answered the question asked by Hitchens, if he was different than Castro.

ks like Chavez didn't put his thumbprints on this program with the oficialista stamp until 2007 under the Mision Musica rubric

Good for him.

Larry G: I agree.

Pagan: The adult branch is great as well.

Larry Gambone said...

Thank you Farmer. We can agree on something at last. Though you probably hate populists too, that is not the point, at least you have the terminology right.

There's nothing wrong with populists if you enjoy being subjected to the daily changing opinions whimsy's of the mob, Gambone. Of course for hoard animals such as ourselves, populism does better represent "the natural order" of mankind than we Americans have grown used to. Perhaps our concept of negative liberty has become a bit over valued in our society. After all, becoming a mere cog in an even more greatly integrated social machine... what's not to love about THAT?
