Gustavo Dudamel’s sensational debut at the 2005 Proms came just one day after his UK debut at Symphony Hall. The critics raved and, at the age of just 24, he became one of the most hotly-tipped young conductors of his generation. He returns to Birmingham with Brahms’s epic First Piano Concerto and Shostakovich’s defiant Fifth Symphony, a passionate affirmation of individual liberty against totalitarian oppression.
The most astonishingly gifted conductor I’ve ever come across. Sir Simon Rattle, from the Telegraph
