    NYOS 35th Anniversary Gala Concert - The Year of the Trumpet
    Håkan Hardenberger, Michael Francis, The National Youth Orchestra of Scotland
    Usher Hall Edinburgh EH1 2EA
    United Kingdom

    In 2014, The National Youth Orchestras of Scotland celebrates 35 years of remarkable music making. To mark the occasion NYOS will host a 35th Anniversary Gala Concert this summer at Edinburgh’s Usher Hall, where the flagship symphony orchestra will be joined by possibly the best trumpet player alive today, none other than Håkan Hardenberger.

    In 2003, NYOS commissioned leading Scottish composer Sally Beamish to compose a trumpet concerto for the man dubbed ‘the best trumpet player in the galaxy’ (The Times), Håkan Hardenberger, to perform at the BBC Proms. The resulting work, with its myriad of percussion and trumpet pyrotechnics, was so well received that NYOS and Hardenberger are again showcasing it in 2014. The programme, conducted by the brilliant young Englishman Michael Francis, making his Scottish debut, will also feature Richard Strauss’s mammoth ‘Alpine Symphony’ requiring no fewer than 17 horn players, wind and thunder machines, organ and even a heckelphone!

    Johannesburg Festival Overture
    Sir William Walton (1902-1983)
    Concerto for Trumpet and Orchestra
    Sally Beamish (1956-)
    Eine Alpensinfonie, 'Alpine Symphony'
