Kristjan Järvi’s commitment to working with young musicians brings him for three concerts with the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain to UK. Concerts will take place in London, Liverpool and Manchester (April 8 to 10).
Join virtuosic young soloist Chad Hoopes and the young orchestra, for Fire and Blood, a concerto for violin and orchestra by one of America’s greatest composers Michael Daugherty. It’s highly charged music, describing the fiery furnaces of 1930s American car assembly lines, with colourful orchestration and pulsing rhythms.
In contrast Stravinsky’s masterpiece The Firebird is a romantic sparkling fairy-tale ballet based on the Russian legend, weaving human and supernatural worlds, and wonderfully showcasing every instrument in the orchestra.
