SCHÖNBRUNN 2012 Dudamel DVD 0762819

. . . [Gustavo Dudamel is] his usual exuberant self . . . The dancers performed on a stage with several inches of water, and this interlude, like the entire concert, was a play of dazzling lights and color. Dancers also are seen in the Mussorgsky and the Strauss waltz, and they dance beautifully . . . the VPO is in top shape . . . they are at their best in the dazzling Giménez Intemezzo that ends the concert. Michael Beyer was video director and he shows us many scenes from the event, capturing the vivid color effects . . . a great show . . .
