This year the National Youth Orchestras of Scotland (NYOS) celebrates four decades of nurturing and developing the country’s best and brightest young musicians. We are delighted therefore, to begin our 40th anniversary year as we did in our inaugural season back in 1979, with a series of spring concerts kindly presented with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.

In the true spirit of partnership, NYOS Symphony Orchestra welcome to the podium RSNO Principal Guest Conductor Elim Chan. Join Elim and the Orchestra on a ‘walking tour’ through five small fishing villages on the northwest coast of Italy in Andrea Tarrodi’s Liguria, before taking in the sights and sounds of Modest Mussorgsky’s popular gallery, Pictures at an Exhibition. NYOS also welcome RSNO favourite Steven Osborne to perform Rachmaninov’s notoriously demanding Piano Concerto No3. Steven is one of Britain’s most treasured musicians whose insightful and idiomatic interpretations of diverse repertoire demonstrate an immense musical depth.

NYOS presented its very first concert series in 1979 and consisted of just one flagship orchestra. Today NYOS boasts eight performing ensembles and provides orchestral experiences in classical and jazz music for over 600 students every year through its comprehensive pathway of orchestras, jazz bands, training ensembles and an ever-expanding outreach programme.

Conductor: Elim Chan

Soloist: Steven Osborne (piano)

Programme:

Sergei Rachamaninoff: Piano Concerto No.3

Andrea Tarrodi: Liguria

Modest Mussorgsky (arr. Ravel): Pictures at an Exhibition



Stalls £20 (£17 Concessions and RSNO subscribers)

Grand Circle £23.50 (£21 Concessions and RSNO subscribers)

Special £6 tickets for Under 26's/Mature Students/Unwaged in the Stalls only.
