Europe may be experiencing a crisis, but the European Union Youth Orchestra (EUYO) is a European success story which could hardly sound better! At Young Euro Classic, where the orchestra first performed in the millennium year 2000, it has reaped standing ovations regularly. No wonder, for the EUYO unites 120 outstanding young musicians from all the EU’s 28 member states. The greatest conductors have graced its podium: this year, the EUYO will be led by the internationally sought-after Gianandrea Noseda. They are joined by a first-class soloist in Chopin’s Piano Concerto, the Korean Seong-Jin Cho, winner of the 2015 Chopin Competition in Warsaw.
Programmatically, the EUYO is on a Slavic mission this year: the main work of the concert is Tchaikovsky’s wonderful Fifth Symphony, and the young Polish composer Agata Zubel opens the evening with the German premiere of her new work, promisingly entitled Fireworks.
“Fireworks” was commissioned by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute as part of the international cultural programme POLSKA 100 and the European Union Youth Orchestra as part of 2018 European Year of Culture.
