Notes & Reviews:

Discoveries, Grammy award winner Gustavo Dudamel's first 'Best of album, features favorites from Beethoven to Bernstein and several Dudamel tracks never before released on CD including highlights from Mendelssohn's Scottish Symphony an the Bacchanale from Saint-Saens' Samson et Delila.

The DVD component on the CD + DVD features the prize-winning, critically-acclaimed documentary by Enrique Sanchez Lansch: The Promise of Music.

Discoveries covers many aspects of Gustavo Dudamel's fascinating musical story so far: the story of his roots in Venezuela' El Sistema (on The Promise of Music), and recordings with many of the orchestras with which he is most closely associated: the Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra, the Vienna Philharmonic, the Berlin Philharmonic and the Gothenburg Symphony

"With my orchestras," says Dudamel, "we think of music like jet fuel. It's pure adrenaline - and I think you can hear it."

The track with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra (Vivace non troppo from Mendelssohn's Symphony No. 3) is taken from the rand new charity LP. This is a first and ONLY release on CD.

Target audience: this is a main stream compilation, we want to connect with audiences going to his concerts worldwide and the people who have seen him on Sesame Street...
