The 2022 edition of Young Euro Classic will be an exciting mix of audience favourites such as the European Union Youth Orchestra and very special guests on 10 August: despite all the uncertainties of the war – the Youth Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine will perform. The conductor is much sought-after Oksana Lyniv. A new addition will be the Chineke! Junior Orchestra from London, which provides a platform for talented young people of colour. At the podium is Venezuelan Glass Marcano. In the line of European guests, the National Youth Orchestras are always a sure bank for excellent skills and a lot of temperament. This also applies to the Portuguese, who this time bring along Bruckner's monumental Ninth Symphony as well as the world premiere of a millennial, the 22 year old composer Marta Domingues. Together with Daniel Harding, young musicians from all over the USA, from Alaska to California, Texas and New York, return to Berlin – their motto is “Think Big!” with Mahler’s expansive and stirring Fifth Symphony and Edward Elgar’s Cello Concerto with Alisa Weilerstein.
