NYOS Symphony Orchestra Summer Tour
In this, Scotland's designated Year of Young People the Festival is showcasing extraordinary young classical talents from both sides of the Atlantic and are beyond proud to be back, and part of such a remarkable line up of young talented musicians.
This extraordinary tour opens in Dundee at the glorious Caird Hall, where NYOS Symphony Orchestra perform a selection of pieces from its full summer programme. A programme, in which the orchestra explores the arresting oceanic recreations of Debussy’s iconic La merand the alluring Spanish colours of his exotic Ibéria. In between, we have two rarely heard masterpieces from a century ago: Lili Boulanger’s impressionistic conjuring of a spring morning and a remarkable poignant work by Scottish composer Cecil Coles, written while the composer was stationed in France during the First World War.

Guiding the Orchestra through this experience of a lifetime, we welcome visionary conductor Paul Daniel to the podium. Lauded as one of the leading conductors of his generation, the Birmingham-born maestro has stood at the helm of some of the world’s most distinguished orchestras and opera companies over the course of his illustrious career.
