Charismatic showstopper John Wilson joins forces with the world’s greatest orchestra of teenagers, the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain, to put their distinctive youthful stamp on the first great British symphony. Grand in scope and luscious in texture, Elgar’s Symphony No. 1 sets out to transport the listener ‘beyond a wide experience of human life…with love…and a massive hope in the future’.
Accompanying this symphonic masterpiece, you’ll journey through Elgar’s arrangement of Bach’s richly imaginative Fantasia and Fugue in C minor, and savour the colourful sights and sounds of The Eternal City in Respighi’s Pines of Rome.
It promises to be a great start to the New Year for the NYO and for more information on the event, please visit:
