Passionate Rising Stars
September 3, 2019 @ 8:30 pm€5 – €12
With almost three decades of artistic activity, the Cyprus Youth Symphony Orchestra cultivates the dreams of passionate youngsters who long to express themselves through the mystical language of music. With the onset of the new artistic season, the cream of the musical youth of Cyprus presents an enlivening concert experience from every aspect. The 12-year-old talented Ela Kallides, violinist at the CyYSO, makes her solo debut in Wieniawski’s highly virtuosic and marvelously expressive 2nd violin concerto, whilst Tchaikovsky’s 5th Symphony is the perfect match for the romantic tone of the evening, “a striking work” that “seems to spring from some dark spiritual experience” as the Russian critic and composer Berezovsky most eloquently wrote.
Αn enchanting orchestra led by an inspiring maestro, a young virtuoso, and a driving passion that unites all sets us up for a memorable evening!
