Dudamel Rehearsing Mahler 5 in London

The incomparable, young Venezuelan conductor Gustavo Dudamel, classical music's biggest new star, leading the London Philharmonia in a rehearsal of Mahler's Fifth, perhaps my favorite piece. He also leads a master class in conducting.

Simply fantastic. He's only six years older than me, and he's already basically the second coming of Bernstein--an incredible musician and excellent educator and pedagogue. Not to mention the fact that he's the best Mahler conductor since Bernstein--particularly in the Fifth. I can hardly wait for him to record the Second, Sixth, Seventh, and Ninth; his Third with the La Scala Orchestra in Milan was revelatory.


Why not have another fun little Dudamel video while we're at it? Here's Dudamel at the 2007 BBC Proms in London with his Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra, conducting Arturo Marquez's Danzon No. 2.
