Notes & Reviews:

"What a knockout concert these young players gave at last year’s Proms. It was an inspirational evening and intensely theatrical too: I well remember that marvellous moment when the players threw off their jackets to reveal the colourful Venezuelan flags beneath. And then there were the extraordinary scenes at the end as some of the youngsters jumped into the Arena to dance with the Prommers. An intoxicating night for all concerned...At the helm is the equally charismatic Gustavo Dudamel, whose infectious charm and good humour – apparent to everyone in the Albert Hall – is an essential component of the band’s success...Happily there’s nothing overblown or relentless about this well-chosen programme, helped in no small measure by DG’s fine recording...these Venezuelans are simply wonderful, this disc a welcome reminder of the night they took London by storm...as thrilling a performance as one could possibly hope for." - MusicWeb International ("Recording of the Month")

"There is virtually nothing to criticize here...this really is outstanding, both in terms of individual numbers and as a program. And there are several novelties here that you won't readily find anywhere else. I'm thinking particularly of Santa Cruz de Pacairigua by Evencio Castellanos, or Aldemaro Romero's very enjoyable Fuga con pajarillo...This collection, superbly played and engineered, certainly whets the appetite for more." - Classics Today (10/10)
