2020-Apr-10, Usher Hall: Presenting: NYOS Spring Concert
Stravinsky, Igor (1882-1971)Petrushka Suite (1947 version)
NYOS Symphony Orchestra
We are delighted to continue our partnership with the National Youth Orchestras of Scotland. In the true spirit of partnership, NYOS welcomes to the podium former RSNO Assistant Conductor Christian Kluxen. Now Music Director of the Victoria Symphony in Canada and Chief Conductor of the Arctic Philharmonic in Norway, Kluxen and the Symphony Orchestra perform Stravinsky’s Petrushka. The sensational sequel to The Firebird, Stravinsky’s ballet about the lovestruck puppet Petrushka astonished audiences in Paris in 1911, and over one hundred years later, its orchestral colours shine just as bright. It’s the perfect showcase for the wonderful musicians of the National Youth Orchestras of Scotland.
