In the organizer's words:
Conductor Dominic Limburg wants to bring young people closer to the orchestra with one of Benjamin Britten's best-known pieces: "The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra - the name says it all: it is the orchestra familiarization piece par excellence. When all the instruments play at the same time in a concert, they are often difficult for untrained ears to distinguish. Here, on the other hand, the individual orchestra groups are dissected, their different sounds explored. As in a wine tasting, specific colors and aromas are pointed out. At the end, the entire orchestra comes together in a complicated fugue; anyone who has listened carefully beforehand can find the individual groups there. For me, one of the tasks of any orchestra is to also develop formats for children and young people. That's exactly what we're doing with Britten's piece: it's an offer for young people to discover the orchestra."
