Ever since the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra took the 2007 Proms by storm, the whole musical world has been talking about El Sistema – the revolutionary social programme that’s turned Venezuelan slum children into some of the most electrifying classical musicians in the world today. The Simón Bolívar Quartet is the latest world-class ensemble to emerge from El Sistema, now making its Liverpool debut in the Rodewald Concert Society Series at St Georges Hall.
