"The promise of music" documents Gustavo Dudamel preparing his Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela in Caracas for their upcoming concert at the Beethovenfest in Bonn, 2007. Following different musicians in their day-to-day lives, the film shows how classical music is changing the individual and their environment. The climax of the film is the Bonn concert, which includes Beethoven's complete "Eroica" symphony and two pieces from the orchestra's Latin American homeland
Symphony no. 1 ; Tragic overture ; Academic festival overture by Gustav Mahler( )

and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written when the composer was only in his late twenties, Mahler's first symphony is a study in optimism. 'In full sail' (his original title for the second movement) could be a motto for the whole work. In this vast symphony, we hear his love of nature and beauty, Mahler's childhood memories, fragments of distant military music, birdsong and even Yiddish folk tunes as they blend together into a paean to life and hope
Mahler 5 by Gustav Mahler( )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tchaikovsky & Shakespeare by Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky( )

14 editions published in 2011 in 4 languages and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gustavo Dudamel conducts symphonic pieces derived from Shakespeare as reimagined in music by Tchaikovsky. Unlike the fantasy overture, Romeo and Juliet, and The Tempest, which are program pieces, Hamlet is more mysterious and less literal in the way its thematic material is developed. All three are luminously beautiful. In every case, Dudamel elicits the most appropriate interpretations imaginable from his electrifying Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra
The liberator = Libertador( Visual )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bookended by a foiled attempt on Bolívar's life in Bogota in 1828, it charts the story of the revolutionary leader's impassioned fight for independence from Spain and creation of a united South American nation, the great stories of love and loss in his life, the political intrigue and drama following his ascension to power and his mysterious death. Simón Bolívar fought over 100 battles against the Spanish Empire in South America. He rode over 70,000 miles on horseback
Tchaikovsky 5 ; Francesca da Rimini by Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky( )

5 editions published in 2008 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mahler 9 by Gustav Mahler( )

10 editions published in 2013 in 3 languages and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is Dudamel's first CD with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, recorded at LA's famed Disney Concert Hall as part of their epic 2012 Mahler Project. Mahler's magisterial Ninth Symphony was completed in 1909; tragically, he died in May 1911, without ever hearing it performed

El sistema by Paul Smaczny( Visual )

34 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ce documentaire émouvant, consacré à l'approche originale de l'éducation musicale au Venezuela, nous fait passer des bidonvilles de Caracas aux plus belles salles de concert du monde entier. Il nous montre comment José Antonio Abreu, un Vénézuélien visionnaire, a métamorphosé l'existence de centaines de milliers d'enfants depuis une trentaine d'années. Des enfants des rues, qui n'avaient connu jusque-là que les conflits armés de la guerre des gangs, sont inscrits dans des écoles de musique, ont accès à la pratique musicale, et apprennent à bâtir une société meilleure grâce au modèle de l'orchestre symphonique."--Conteneur

Also sprach Zarathustra by Richard Strauss( )

9 editions published in 2013 in 3 languages and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Atmosphärische, Bildhafte, Erzählerische - das liegt Dudamel, da ist er ganz in seinem Element. Und anschaulich wie Filmgestalten sind schließlich auch die drei Figuren, die Richard Strauss in seinen symphonischen Dichtungen porträtiert: Der Weise Zarathustra, der Spitzbube Till Eulenspiegel und der Mantel-und-Degen-Liebesabenteurer Don Juan
