The world's greatest teenage orchestra joins forces with inspirational conductor, Carlos Miguel Prieto, once again.
The National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain is a phenomenon, and until you’ve heard 164 teenage players raising the roof of the Royal Festival Hall, you don’t know what young musicians can do. The sound knocks you backwards – and you can expect this to double, as the concert opens with two explosive Latin American masterpieces.
Next, they swing in Gershwin’s Piano Concerto, before Mexican conductor Carlos Miguel Prieto channels all that youthful energy into the passion, pride and pure optimism of Copland’s monumental Third Symphony. You’ll recognise its Fanfare for the Common Man – but believe us, there’s absolutely nothing commonplace about the NYO.
