Odeon Youth Symphony Orchestra of Munich to perform in Wuhan
The Odeon Youth Symphony Orchestra of Munich will deliver a performance at the Qintai Concert Hall on August 31.
The symphony orchestra is made up of musicians aged from 15 to 25, all originating from the Munich metropolitan area. Associated with the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra, with which they have regular rehearsals and performances, the Odeon Youth Symphony Orchestra also invited principal conductors Zubin Mehta and Lorin Maazel to be their art consultants. As it has trained a number of young musicians, the orchestra has been named as "the purest successor of the German and Austrian music tradition" by Gramophone.
The principal conductor is Julio Doggenweiler Fernández from Chile, who studied orchestral conducting at the Superior Music School in Munich, Germany.
On the evening of August
31, the Odeon Youth Symphony Orchestra will perform the "Academic Festival Overture" by Brahms, Mozart's
"35th Symphony in D Major," and "Symphonie Fantastique" by Berloiz as part of their program.
