Violin virtuoso Itzhak Perlman is performing with Venezuela's top young musicians and says he is impressed by their spirit and intensity. Perlman said Wednesday that he was moved by the experience of playing with Venezuelan conductor Gustavo Dudamel and his Simon Bolivar Youth Symphony Orchestra during their first of two concerts in Caracas this week. "What's absolutely fantastic is the intensity of the musical involvement of all the young people in the orchestra," Perlman said. "It's a pleasure for me to look at them and see how they're involved in what they're doing." The excitement, he said, is "unavoidable" when performing with Dudamel, the 28-year-old who debuts in October as musical director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
