Gustavo Dudamel conducts Mahler: Symphony No. 8 Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra


The fiery Gustavo Dudamel conducts Mahler's Symphony of a Thousand at the Salzburg Festival.

The Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela (formerly known as the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela) is the orchestra of the music education program El Sistema, founded in 1975 by economist and musician José Antonio Abreu. The most illustrious representative of this program is certainly the superstar conductor Gustavo Dudamel himself, now at the head of both the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra. This concert opens the El Sistema residency in Salzburg.
