(Gustavo takes Sweden and they love it)


Today's mid-week concert comes from Sveriges Radio in Sweden, recorded this past week (June 3), it features the Gothenberg Symphony Orchestra led by Principle guest Conductor Gustavo Dudamel in a program of Stenhammer and Shostakovich. First off, the Stenhammer Serenade for Strings. And then followed by an overwhelming reading of the Shostakovitch 5th Symphony.

The concert is around 90 minutes, so I split it up - the first part (up there) is the Stenhammer (a really nice performance of a not-too-familiar work) and the second part (down there) is the Shostakovich.

Dudamel has become an overnight sensation and its easy to understand why. He has a habit of bringing out the best in an orchestra and his sheer love of the music is infectious to even the most stoic music listener.

If you aren't familiar, now's your chance. Since it's a live concert from Sweden, the announcements are in Swedish but there's not a lot of them.
