The Bergen Philharmonic Youth Orchestra is a new outreach of the Bergen Philharmonic with ambitions to become a flagship among Norwegian youth orchestras.
To this end, they work not only with their Chief Conductor Kjell Seim, but also on a regular basis with Edward Gardner, as well as other internationally renowned conductors.
On this occasion, the young players are fortunate to make the acquaintance of a musician of unusual depth and experience, Jesús López Cobos, whose illustrious career has literally encompassed the globe.
He has chosen a challenging, yet appealing programme: Halffter is considered one of the most important Spanish composers of the 20th century. His Tiento del primer tono y Batalla is a deeply emotional work which ranges from meditative to cataclysmic, ending in triumph.
