Mendelssohn Symphony No. 3 - Dudamel - Wiener Philharmoniker on 180g LP
Special LP-only release of Grammy award winner Gustavo Dudamel's official debut concert with the Vienna Philharmonic at Musikverein, featuring Mendelssohn's Scottish Symphony.
This charity project has been made possible through a cooperation of the Vienna Philharmonic, Gustavo Dudamel, the Musikverein, ORF broadcasting and Deutsche Grammophon, all are donating their work and profits to a cause near and dear to Gustavo's heart.
Proceeds from the album will support the purchase of instruments for the aspiring young musicians of El Sistema in San Vicente, the nucleo or music education centre, in northern-central Venezuelan state of Aragua. This area is classified as one of extreme poverty, and yet, despite widespread deprivation, human dignity is preserved through the participation of children in intensive music education, training and performance.
This particular nucleo is significant in that it represents the first centre in the Venezuelan music movement to have been designed from the start both by and for the community, with everything a music school needs, from lighting and ventilation to acoustics
In the words of Gustavo Dudamel: "Being part of an orchestra when they have nothing else gives these children the chance to start building a real bridge towards achieving the dream of playing with the Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra or the Vienna Philharmonic. Little by little, it becomes reality rather than fantasy."
