A Dudamel Workout
The young Venezuelan conductor is known for his energetic, gravity-defying conducting style. He stomps, he leaps, he grunts. Today Gustavo Dudamel puts in another aerobic workout conducting the Radio France Philharmonic in Zoltan Kodaly's "Dances from Galanta." Join us for Performance Today, and get your heart rate up.
