• Shostakovich Symphony No. 927′
  • Barber Cello Concerto30′
  • Stravinsky Symphony in Three Movements25′

This year’s CBSO Youth Orchestra Academy plunges into the dark heart of the twentieth century. Stravinsky’s brilliance and Shostakovich’s savage wit are two very different perspectives on the Second World War. So too is Samuel Barber’s magnificent Cello Concerto, and if you love his famous Adagio, you’ll need to hear this. Because you can be sure of one thing: our superb young players will give it their all.
