9780199341559: El Sistema: Orchestrating Venezuela's Youth
Reseña del editor:

The Venezuelan youth orchestra program known as "El Sistema" has attracted much attention internationally, partly via the activities of its flagship orchestra, The Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra headed by Gustavo Dudamel, and partly through its claims to use classical music education to foster social inclusion. The System has become a paradigm for music education around the globe, having been met almost solely with praise. Yet, despite El Sistema's significance in shaping and influencing music education programs throughout much of the world, it has been the subject of surprisingly little scrutiny and genuine debate.

In this first full-length critical study of the program, Geoffrey Baker explores the career of its founder, José Antonio Abreu, and the ideology and organizational dynamics of his institution. Drawing on a year of fieldwork in Venezuela and incorporating insights from a range of academic disciplines, Baker examines El Sistema's program of "social action through music," overturning prevailing notions of the system as a force for social betterment. Abreu, a Nobel Peace Prize nominee, emerges as a complex and controversial figure, whose project is shaped by his religious education, business management training, and political apprenticeship. Claims for the symphony orchestra as a progressive pedagogical tool and motor of social justice are questioned, and assertions that the program prioritizes social over musical goals and promotes democracy, meritocracy, and teamwork are also challenged.

Through interviews with numerous Venezuelan musicians and cultural figures, Baker places El Sistema in historical and comparative perspective, revealing that it is far from the revolutionary social program of contemporary imagination, and illustrating how it represents less the future of classical music than a step backwards into its past. A controversial and eye-opening account sure to stir debate, El Sistema is an essential read for anyone fascinated by this phenomenon in the world of music education.

Reseña del editor:

The Venezuelan youth orchestra program known as "El Sistema" has attracted much attention internationally, partly via its flagship orchestra, The Simónn Bolivar Youth Orchestra, headed by Gustavo Dudamel, and partly through its claims to use classical music education to rescue vulnerable children. Having been met overwhelmingly with praise, The System has become an inspiration for music educators around the globe. Yet, despite its fame, influence, and size - it is projected to number a million students in Venezuela and has spread to dozens of countries - it has been the subject of surprisingly little scrutiny and genuine debate.

In this first full-length critical study of the program, Geoffrey Baker explores the career of its founder, José Antonio Abreu, and the ideology and organizational dynamics of his institution. Drawing on a year of fieldwork in Venezuela and interviews with Venezuelan musicians and cultural figures, Baker examines El Sistema's program of "social action through music," reassessing widespread beliefs about the system as a force for positive social change. Abreu, a Nobel Peace Prize nominee, emerges as a complex and controversial figure, whose project is shaped by his religious education, economics training, and political apprenticeship. Claims for the symphony orchestra as a progressive pedagogical tool and motor of social justice are questioned, and assertions that the program prioritizes social over musical goals and promotes civic values such as democracy, meritocracy, and teamwork are also challenged.

Placing El Sistema in historical and comparative perspective, Baker reveals that it is far from the revolutionary social program of contemporary imagination, representing less the future of classical music than a step backwards into its past. A controversial and eye-opening account sure to stir debate, El Sistema is an essential read for anyone curious about this phenomenon in the worlds of classical music, education, and social development.
