Lineup and Details for National Youth Orchestra Summer Prom on Wed 1st August 2012
Described by The Times as the most uplifting orchestra in the world, the vast National Youth Orchestra comprises 165 of the countrys most talented teenage stars. Hear them here first with their equally exuberant Principal Conductor Vasily Petrenko, pianist Joanna MacGregor and ondes Martenot expert Cynthia Millar. Together they awaken the wonders of Messiaens uplifting testament to time and love, the breathtaking musical kaleidoscope that is Turangalîla-Symphonie.
BBC Music magazines Editor, Oliver Condy, recommends tonights concert: Vasily Petrenko is one of the UKs fastest-rising conducting stars. Hes already worked wonders with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and hes expected to do the same for the fabulous National Youth Orchestra. Bringing together musicians from every corner of the country, tonights concert has a true Olympic feel.
