To witness charismatic conductor Gustavo Dudamel with the radiant musicians of the National Youth Orchestra of Venezuela is to experience firsthand the power of music to transform. The orchestra's members are products of Venezuela's world-famous El Sistema music education program, and as musicians they represent the highest standards of excellence, bolstered by a contagious sense of youthful optimism. The program is split between Prokofiev's rousing Fifth Symphony and music from Dudamel's celebrated Fiesta project, featuring delightful short works by a selection of great North and South American composers.
