Description
(Winner of the 2013 ASCAP Béla Bartók Award for Outstanding Ethnomusicology Book) When young Gustavo Dudamel ascended the podium at the Hollywood Bowl for his inaugural concert as conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, he immediately captivated the hearts of his audience, as he had the music critics who designated him a modern-day Leonard Bernstein. Tricia Tunstall explores the maestro's success as a window on another remarkable story, that of the El Sistema music program that taught him. What began in Venezuela has now reached Los Angeles, New York, Baltimore, and cities around the world, rescuing children from the depredations of poverty through music.

"In a compelling, readable book that is part history and part social activism, [Tunstall] uses Dudamel's youthful exuberance and enthusiasm for music and these programs as an example of the way that music education can be a tool for social transformation."—Publishers Weekly

"Tunstall soundly probes how it is that classical music has played such a powerful role in the protection, education, and elevation of so many children born into poverty. The author does a noble job tracing the history of El Sistema, while managing to keep the narrative as much in the immediate present as possible."—Kirkus Reviews
