Dudamel, Gustavo. GUSTAVO DUDAMEL: SOUVENIR PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPH. Los Angeles, CA: Los Angeles Symphony Orchestra, 2016. Softcover. First Edition/First Printing. 1 pages. Fine.

Rare Gustavo Dudamel collectible item. A fine copy of his Souvenir Portrait Photograph, signed by Gustavo Dudamel. The original black-and-white photographic print measures 8 X 10 inches, and has no borders. Enclosed in its own protective plastic sleeve. Printed on archival stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents "Gustavo Dudamel: Souvenir Portrait Photograph". One of his most arresting portraits, with composer John Williams, whose music for "Star Wars" he famously performed as the Music Director of the Los Angeles Symphony Orchestra. The music influenced and inspired the charismatic Classical Music icon to compose his own score for "The Liberator", the film epic on the life and times of Simon Bolivar. Dudamel's attachment to Bolivar is profound: He is the most phenomenal product of Venezuela's El Sistema and its most enduring, world-class offspring, the Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra, the greatest youth orchestra in the world. With Dudamel at the helm, the latter has performed throughout the world and recorded some of the finest performances of our time. "The most important musical event and phenomenon of our time" (Sir Simon Rattle). An absolute "must-have" collectible, not just memorabilia, item for Gustavo Dudamel collectors. This copy of the Souvenir Portrait Photograph is very boldly and beautifully signed in gold pen-marker in front by Gustavo Dudamel. It is signed directly on the print itself, not on a tipped-in page. This item is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such signed Souvenir Portrait Photograph available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed item thus. One of the most brilliant musical figures of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO GIUSEPPE SINOPOLI AND RICCARDO MUTI TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). $100.00
