Introduction/abstract

European Union Youth Orchestra · Jess Gillam · Vasily Petrenko

PROKOFJEW · GLASUNOW · STRAWINSKI

The European Union Youth Orchestra's concert opens with Sergei Prokofiev's wild Scythian Suite; at its 1916 premiere was Alexander Glazunov, who marched out of the hall early. His Saxophone Concerto, performed by rising star Jess Gillam, is a more romantic affair. Stravinsky's «Rite of Spring», which influenced Prokofiev's piece, closes the concert
