"The Venezuelan orchestra system is truly impressive"

Caracas, May 30 (EFE) .- The Spanish conductor Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos today called Venezuelan orchestra system as "impressive" and said the youth symphony orchestras "are as good as those of Europe." "The system is an impressive musical and not just in the musical, is also the social work they do, take these kids from the favelas and become great musicians," said the director, in Caracas last night after leading the Youth Symphony Orchestra and the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela Teresa Carreño.

Frühbeck, conductor and artistic director of the Dresden Philharmonic (Germany), was invited to Jamaica by musician and composer José Antonio Abreu, founder of the National System of Youth and Children Orchestras of Venezuela. "It was a fantastic experience to be here the theater was always crowded, was a smash hit and also very emotional, "he said Frühbeck, who claimed to have seen the public weeping with emotion.

"These boys played with breathtaking virtuosity, played the third movement of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony as one of the best orchestras in Europe or perhaps better," said the master of the baton. The director said that Venezuela will soon, as Abreu and other musicians have invited him back.

He added that this model could be copied music education in other countries, but said the nation that attempts to "find an Abreu should do so and that is so dedicated and tireless as he" because "you have to devote years to emerge something as big as this. " The system, as known to the music education program won the Prince of Asturias Prize in 2008, includes some 300,000 young people, mostly low socioeconomic levels.
