Gustavo Dudamel’s thrilling debut at the Salzburg Festival in 2008 recorded live in the heat of the moment at the Grosses Festspielhaus. Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, orchestrated in psychedelic colors by Ravel, elicits rousing playing from Dudamel’s young instrumentalists.
Dudamel assembles a dream team for Beethoven’s Triple Concerto. Pianist Martha Argerich, violinist Renaud Capuçon and cellist Gautier Capuçon bring Latin emotionality to one of Beethoven’s most emotionally naked compositions. Extras include Die Schule des Hörens – master classes in listening led by Dudamel, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, and the SBYOV as given at the 2008 Salzburg Festival.
