Once again, the National Youth Orchestra of Wales finish their annual summer concert tour at St David’s Hall, this time under the expert guidance of first-class American conductor, Andrew Litton. The programme captures the very nature of three very different continents with the playfulness of the Fantasia and the depiction of America’s Midwest contrast magnificently with the drama of Shostakovich’s symphony. Featuring Wales’ most talented young musicians it promises to be a performance not to be missed.
Grace Williams: Fantasia on Welsh Nursery Tunes
Copland: The Tender Land Suite
Shostakovich: Symphony no.10
