About Participation in Young Euro Classic
Young Euro Classic is one of the most powerful platforms in the world for young international orchestras performing European traditional classical music. Every day of the festival a new youth orchestra performs.
The YsOU was part of the planned program already in the fall of 2021 when planning for the festival began. When the war started, the festival management and the orchestra decided to reserve a concert evening for the Youth Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine.
The program begins with Beethoven's Egmont Overture, a beacon against oppression and foreign domination. The evening also will be devoted to two Ukrainian works: the symphonic ballad "Grazhyna" by Boris Lyatoshinsky, a late romantic, who is considered the father of independent Ukrainian orchestral music, and Oleg Kiva's chamber cantata for voice and orchestra, glorifying the eternal beauty of the world. Antonin Dvorak's melodically blissful symphony No. 9 "From the New World" brings an optimistic conclusion, which, although the work concerns primarily the composer's longing for his Czech homeland.
