Notes & Reviews:

This symphonic wind ensemble is a product of the "El Sistema" system, the Venezuelan music education project of José Antonio Abreu. This CD testifies to the versatility and unbridled joy in playing of the 100 plus young wind instrumentalists. Valdemar Rodríguez, founder of Banda Sinfónica, and young Víctor Mendoza are featured as soloists.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
Banda Sinfonica Jevenil is the wind adjunct of the famous Sistema movement from Venezuela From that information alone, you know these are virtuoso performances played with enthusiasm and spirit. The only question is whether the music and arrangements are on the same level. The short answer is they are. Modeste Moussorgsky's Pictures has been arranged for orchestra by many transcribers, as well as for brass ensemble, organ, and even solo instruments and playing are on this high level. Mark Hindsley's work was clearly influenced by the Ravel orchestration, so if you like that, you'll like this. The playing is sleek, smooth, and spirited - a description that fits all these performances. Ravel's Bolero is so outstanding in this arrangement. At that point I thought, "Wow, it really is possible for clarinets to sound like a string section". That trombone solo, by the way, is one of the smoothest and warmest I've ever heard. Ginastera's 'Malambo' from Estancia may be more exciting played by winds than by orchestra. Giancarlo Castro D'Addona is a trumpet player and also a product of Sistema. Grand Fanfare is in ABA form. The A sections make one of the most exciting, vigorous, and difficult fanfares I've heard in a while. If you like band and wind music even a little, this disk is irresistible, and the sound is terrific.
