Complete Beethoven Symphonies

Gustavo Dudamel will release complete videos of all nine Beethoven Symphonies for free on his YouTube channel, beginning on December 9 through December 17, 2022, releasing one symphony each day, culminating with the Ninth Symphony on Beethoven’s birthday.

The video captures come from Dudamel’s celebrated performances with the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela, at the Palau de la Música Catalana in Barcelona, Spain in March 2017.

The release will also feature videos of musicians from the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela, reflecting upon their favorite moments in Beethoven's Symphonies, and the experience of performing them with Gustavo.

"The opportunity to make music with my beloved friends of the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra is one of the greatest gifts of my life, and so I am deeply honored to now be able to offer these unforgettable performances as a gift to everyone this holiday season. The music of Beethoven is universal – his vision for a better future was rooted in a celebration of joy and shared humanity, and that spirit of kinship flows through each note of these concerts.”
– Gustavo Dudamel
Whirlwind, earthquake of emotions, fireworks, pyrotechnics. The adjectives flow like a torrent to conductor Gustavo Dudamel when he wants to define what the nine symphonies of Beethoven performed by the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela represent. –El Pais
In their hands, Beethoven is full of the joy you don’t always find in other performances… –Bachtrack
