Dean Frey
Music for Several Instruments, July 2017

…this is a delight from beginning to end. There’s a real sense of presence at a significant event, and the LA Philharmonic respond with standout playing. The crowd is into this program completely; they’re especially enamoured of guitarist Angel Romero, looking fabulous in his many-coloured shirt. Dudamel, as always, is a charismatic figure, but he’s often the still, calm centre when things get exciting with the dancing of Tango Buenos Aires and the always inventive orchestration of three great composers from Argentina. Ginastera’s Dances from Estancia have the odd hint of modernism, but remain accessible; their rhythms are often much more complex than the tangos and milongas of the rest of the program, but Dudamel and his superb musicians handle them with ease. © 2017 Music for Several Instruments Read complete review

Audiophile Audition, March 2017

This was a most invigorating evening at the Hollywood Bowl. Gustavo Dudamel is perfect as the conductor of the orchestra and the assemblage of this evening, which accents the colors, rhythms and passion of music by Piazzolla—the master of The New Tango—composer Lalo Schifrin, composer Ginastera, noted guitarist Angel Romero and the dancers of the authentic tango from Buenos Aires. …The Buenos Aires dancers are fun to watch as they perform in front of the orchestra. The sonics are top-notch. © 2017 Audiophile Audition Read complete review
