The always surprising talent of the Venezuelan Gustavo Dudamel highlighted last night the inexhaustible transforming capacity of music, which in his wake expressed the creative gift of the 60 musicians who make up the Encounter Orchestra. The complexity of La noche transfigurada (Verkñärte nacht), by Schönberg, and intensity with the chord structures that intertwine Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for strings reached a subtle and ingenious nuance as a result of the novel reading that the Venezuelan musician made of both scores and the successful conjunction of the strings, surprising the original position in which he knew how to place them.

The Dudamel Foundation began last Friday at the Príncipe Felipe de Oviedo auditorium the tour of three concerts with the aforementioned repertoire, which concludes tomorrow at the Alfredo Kraus in Las Palmas. In just over a week the musicians, with teachers from different orchestras (the Vienna Philharmonic and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, among others), have prepared the program in Madrid. The high musical level that the musicians share and their ability to face the task assumed translates into the degree of excellence they express. Among the instrumentalists are eight canaries, almost all linked to the Young Orchestra of the Canary Islands (JOCAN), a formation that began in 2016, with the artistic direction of Víctor Pablo Pérez and the technical and academic direction of Korstiaan Kegel. Gustavo Dudamel will conduct the Mahler Chamber Orchestra next Sunday at the Auditorium.
