Conductor Gustavo Dudamel

Ink, 2020
Approximately 36″ x 24.5″ Framed

I’ll never forget the first time I saw a video of Dudamel at the Proms conducting Danzon #2 by Arturo Mraquez with the Orquesta Juvenil Simón Bolívar de Venezuela.  It was captivating, magnificent and refreshing.  His work has only grown with his incredibly resonant mind.  One gets a direct sense that he is determined to share the potential of aural assessment in all the sensuous shaping and gathering of sound, no matter how singular an instrument may be.  He coddles us within the sound and the clarity of it’s ebb and flow.  We become engulfed with the resonance of his arul journey.  You may not always be listening to the strict intent of the composer, but you will experience the height of what the composers map can be.  I particularly love this.  The listener often has a true sense that what they just heard is only possible with him at the helm.  It’s no longer just about the piece but what he can make the piece do upon our being.

“The challenge is not so much to change the sound. The challenge is to connect and to create something special.” – Gustavo Dudamel
