Conductor Gustavo Dudamel: A Phenomenon to Celebrate and Watch

"I have now experienced the conducting of Gustavo Dudamel "live" on three occasions. On top of that I've watched two video recordings and listened to at least three or four CDs as well, in some cases multiple times. I have to say that he is a phenomenon quite unlike just about anything or anyone I have experienced in almost fifty years of concert going. If you want a definition of the phrase "podium presence," the best way I can define it is to suggest watching Dudamel conduct.
Why do I write about him? After all, I rarely use this blog to "promote" an artist. One reason is that I already see signs of the all-too-predictable critical backlash that always follows any big success. I'm old enough to remember when Britten's War Requiem was introduced to the world and the initial reviews labeled it as one of the greatest choral works since Verdi's Requiem. While that may have been an overstatement, certainly the Britten work is one of the sublime masterpieces of the twentieth century. But as rave after rave followed its premiere, I remember saying to my wife something like "You watch. Within a few months the backlash will come." And sure enough, it did. Suddenly the War Requiem couldn't buy a good review: It went from being a timeless masterpiece to being an overrated hodgepodge of styles, most of them stolen from other composers (Verdi included). Eventually history made its determination, and the War Requiem seems to have earned a permanent place in the canon."
