European Union Youth Orchestra conducted by Vladimir Ashkenazy
Sunday 30 March 2008 – 2.30pm
Philharmonic Hall, Hope Street
Presented by the Liverpool Culture Company for 2008
Spent a very pleasant Sunday afternoon in the Philharmonic Hall listening to some of Europe’s finest young classical musicians. I’m no expert but to me they sounded as good as any orchestra of more mature years. The solo violinist was especially good.
Europe’s most talented young musicians were in Liverpool on the final leg of the EUYO’s 2008 European tour. Conducted by the orchestra’s Musical Director, Vladimir Ashkenazy, the concert
featured acclaimed German violinist Arabella Steinbacher.
Grieg Peer Gynt Suite No.1
