Duration: around 70 minutes without a break
Association of the Highly Gifted
The Styriarte Youth Orchestra was formed for the first time in 2021 and at the request of Andrés Orozco-Estrada in order to create a very young, fresh ensemble for him and our audience to realise the project "Lust for Tchaikovsky". The call for proposals intended to bring together musicians living in Austria between the ages of 16 and 26, who had not yet established themselves professionally. The young musicians come from Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, Japan, Greece, Great Britain, Turkey, Colombia, Germany, Chile, Serbia, Italy, Hungary, Ukraine and Venezuela. The selection from the proposals was made by a jury of musicians from top Austrian orchestras together with Andrés Orozco-Estrada.
This orchestral project will now be continued in 2022 - with a new selection. This time, however, the chief conductor of the Recreation Orchestra, Mei-Ann Chen, a highly renowned conductor from Taiwan who lives in America, will take the baton and work with the young people on Berlioz's "Symphonie fantastique".
In the jury, which also accompanies the young people through the project as coaches, were 2021: violinist Sophie Heinrich (concertmaster of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra), for viola Eszter Haffner (Royal Academy of Music Copenhagen & Kunstuniversität Graz), cellist Maria Grün (Vienna Symphony Orchestra), double bassist Brita Bürgschwendtner (Mozarteumorchester Salzburg), for the woodwinds the clarinettist Andrea Götsch (Vienna State Opera Orchestra), for the brass the horn player Christoph Peham (Lower Austrian Tonkünstler Orchestra) and the percussionist Ulrike Stadler (Recreation - Das Orchester).
