Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra
In the second concert of its 2023/24 season, the Orchestra performs three works illustrating different aspects of the Romantic period. Master of operetta Jacques Offenbach provides a stylish opening with his flamboyant Overture to Orpheus in the Underworld. Soloist Antonio Oyarzábal changes the mood with Ravel’s impressionistic Piano Concerto in G Major.
In the second half, the orchestra performs Rachmaninov’s Second Symphony; a piece whose beauty and emotional power transcend time and place, making it a timeless classic that will continue to move audiences for generations to come.
The Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra brings together outstanding young players from across the UK, who are on the threshold of their orchestral careers. Every professional orchestra in the UK contains alumni of YMSO, many of whom are section principals.
