Shakespearean drama; Hollywood splendour; Mankind’s spirit and endeavour – all in a night’s work for the world’s greatest orchestra of teenagers..
The National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain, under the inspirational leadership of conductor Nicholas Collon, perform a rousing programme of great orchestral works culminating in Prokofiev’s popular Symphony No. 5, his moving wartime tribute to the ‘grandeur of the human spirit.’
This music is compelling, dramatic, powerful, and in the hands of 165 of the UK’s brightest virtuosic teenagers, totally uplifting.
