The Promise of Music is a full-length feature film about the story of Gustavo Dudamel and his Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela. The film documents Dudamel preparing his orchestra in Caracas for their upcoming concert at the Beethovenfest in Bonn, in 2007. Following different musicians in their day-to-day lives, the film shows how classical music is changing the individual and their environment. The climax of the film is the Bonn concert, a stunning success with standing ovations given to every work on the programme, which includes Beethoven’s complete ‘Eroica’ Symphony and two pieces from the orchestra’s Latin-American homeland.
Director Enrique Sanchez Lansch created the award-winning documentary Rhythm Is It! about Sir Simon Rattle’s education project with the Berliner Philharmoniker. The Promise of Music is the first full-length documentary on the Venezuelan Sistema that lives up to the highest European TV standards. A unique and deeply moving look behind the scenes of one of the most talked about phenomena in the musical world of today.
