The PALESTINE YOUTH ORCHESTRA in Gothenburg 8/8 - EUROPEAN TOUR| 2019

Pressmeddelande   •   Aug 06, 2019 15:48 CEST

In a programme celebrating LOVE, the PYO will perform Arabic music together with music from Bizet’s Carmen, Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet, Saint-Saen’s Samson and Delilah, and Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde. There will be a rare opportunity to hear music by Salvador Arnita, an organist and composer from Jerusalem, and a world premiere by the Palestinian film composer Faris Badarni. Badarni's Palestinian Rhapsody celebrates the sounds, peoples and cultures of Palestine.

The musicians will be resident in Kristiansund, Norway, where they will perform on 4 August, before concerts in Trondheim (5 Aug), Oslo (7 Aug), Gothenburg (8 Aug), Copenhagen (10 Aug), Aarhus (11 Aug), Bremen (13 Aug) and Apeldoorn (15 Aug). They finish their tour at the world-famous Concertgebouw in Amsterdam (16 Aug), making their debut performance in the Netherlands.
Conducted by the Dutch conductor Vincent de Kort.
The PYO will be joined by Palestinian singer Nai Barghouti, a rising star in the international world music scene. She performs three specially orchestrated songs by the legendary singer Fairuz.
In Copenhagen they are joined by Danish cellist Toke Møldrup at the Tivoli Concert Hall performing Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations, and in Apeldoorn they present an incredible shared performance with the National Youth Orchestra of the Netherlands featuring music devised by both orchestras together based on Arabic music. In addition to their symphonic concerts, they will present chamber concerts in Kristiansund, Aarhus and Amsterdam, not to be missed, and a brilliant way to see the orchestra in a different light.
