Conductor Introduction - İngilizce
Internationally acclaimed conductor Gustavo Dudamel continues to share his magnetic enthusiasm for music with audiences of all ages around the world. As he begins his twelfth year as Music Director of the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra, in fall 2010, he enters his second season as Music Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and his fourth season with the Gothenburg Symphony. Armed with unparalleled passion, energy and artistic excellence, Dudamel is dedicated to leading these orchestras, as well as to increasing his commitment to opera.
Coming from a background where being involved in music from a young age was a life changing experience, Gustavo Dudamel is devoted to investing in classical music as an engine of social change.
The message of his ongoing work in Venezuela through El Sistema, which influences hundreds of thousands of children each year, is being carried now into the United States through Youth Orchestra Los Angeles (YOLA).
This program for children targets underserved Los Angeles communities and continues to grow and expand under Dudamels leadership and that of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. He is also involved in advising on pilot programs in Gothenburg, Sweden and Raploch, Scotland.
Following a summer 2010 concert performance of Bizets Carmen with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl and semi-staged performances of Verdis La Traviata with the SBYO in Caracas, Gustavo Dudamel began his 2010-11 season in Gothenburg.
A return Vienna Philharmonic engagement with a European tour culminated at New Yorks Carnegie Hall on October 2 and 3. Dudamels Los Angeles Philharmonic season began on October 7 with an Opening Night Gala Concert featuring guest artist Juan Diego Flórez, and is being telecast by PBS with international distribution.
Dudamel then goes on to La Scala in October and November where he conducts nine staged performances of Bizets Carmen. An operatically themed series of Berlin Philharmonic concerts with soloist Elina Garanča culminates in a nationally televised New Years concert to end 2010.
In January/February 2011, Dudamel leads the LA Phil on his first international tour as their Music Director with concerts in Lisbon, Madrid, Cologne, London, Paris, Budapest and Vienna, with repertoire including Slonimskys Earbox by John Adams, Bernsteins Symphony No. 1 Jeremiah, Beethovens Symphony No. 7 and Mahlers Symphony No. 9.
Other Dudamel conducting highlights of the LA Phils season include the Brahms Unbound Festival, a series of seven concerts pairing Brahmss complete symphonic pieces with premieres and newly commisioned works, in addition to concerts with repertoire ranging from Messiaens Turangalîla Symphony to works by composers such as Bruckner, Górecki, Gubaidulina, Lieberson, Mackey, Schumann, Shostakovich, Takemitsu and Weber. With the Gothenburg Symphony, highlights include a national tour of Sweden during April 2011, along with numerous Gothenburg performances with repertoire focused on Mahler, Brahms and Dvořák.
Also in April, Dudamel returns to the Berlin Philharmonic for two weeks of appearances which include concerts in Berlin and at the Salzburg Easter Festival. Gustavo Dudamel continues to lead the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra this season for concerts and recordings in Caracas, Venezuela, as well as for an extensive South American tour to São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires and Mexico City.
Gustavo Dudamel has been an exclusive Deutsche Grammophon artist since 2005. His debut recording, Beethoven Nos. 5&7 with the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra released in 2006, received the 2007 Echo Award (Germany) for New Artist of the Year. Subsequent recordings with the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra include Mahler No. 5, FIESTA (primarily Latin American works) and Tchaikovskys Symphony No. 5 and Francesca da Rimini.

Brought to international attention by triumphing in the inaugural Bamberger Symphoniker Gustav Mahler Conducting Competition in May 2004, Gustavo Dudamel was born in 1981 in Barquisimeto, Venezuela, where he studied violin at the Jacinto Lara Conservatory with José Luis Jiménez and later, with José Francisco del Castillo, at the Latin American Academy of Violin.
In 1996, he began his conducting studies with Rodolfo Saglimbeni and that same year was named Music Director of the Amadeus Chamber Orchestra. In 1999, along with assuming the Music Director position of the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra, he began conducting studies with José Antonio Abreu, the Orchestras founder.
In May 2007, Dudamel was awarded the Premio de la Latindad, an honor given for outstanding contributions to Latin cultural life. In 2008, the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra was granted Spains prestigious annual Prince of Asturias Award for the Arts, and in 2007, Dudamel received the Royal Philharmonic Society Music Award for Young Artists. Along with his mentor Dr. Abreu, he was granted the 2008 Q Prize from Harvard University for extraordinary service to children.
In June 2009, he received an honorary doctorate from the Universidad Centro-Occidental Lisandro Alvarado in his hometown of Barquisimeto, Venezuela. Dudamel was awarded the Chevalier dans lOrdre des Arts et des Lettres in Paris in 2009, and is the recipient of the 2010 Eugene McDermott Award in the Arts at MIT, which recognizes rising, innovative talents.
