'Symphony of a Thousand' (plus)

With the combined Los Angeles Philharmonic and Simon Bolivar Symphony, along with 1,200 (!) singers from every state in Venezuela onstage in Caracas, Gustavo Dudamel climaxed his unprecedented Mahler Project with what has to have been the most extravagant performance of Mahler's Eighth Symphony ever. For the monthlong Mahler Project, an indefatigable Dudamel had conducted complete cycles of Mahler's nine symphonies first in Los Angeles and then in Caracas. By the end he reached this blockbuster of wonder. Deutsche Grammophon captured it on disc , making it the video of the year.
