Winter Tour 2021
The National Youth Orchestra of the Netherlands (NJO), led by the passionate Antony Hermus, will perform an adapted programme due to COVID-19 measures which will nevertheless still guarantee an oustanding concert. The renowned Storioni Trio will be celebrating its 25th anniversary in the 2020-2021 season, which was a good reason for the NJO to invite the three as soloists. Trio and orchestra together will bring a forgotten composition by the Hungarian Emanuel Moór on stage. This Triple Concerto was composed in 1907 and dedicated to Alfred Cortot, Jacques Thibaut and Pablo Casals, who also performed it many times. The piece has most probably never been performed in the Netherlands before, but the Storioni Trio has taken it upon itself to bring it to the stage. The NJO is of course happy to participate in this great project.
In addition to this special musical work, the NJO will perform Antonín Dvořák’s Sixth symphony. With this ‘pastoral’ symphony which is recognisably influenced by Brahms, Beethoven and Schubert, Dvořák made his way into the international spotlights. The symphony, finished in 1880, is known for its lyrical melodies, performed by wood wind instruments and horns as well as strings, but also for its rich and colourful orchestral sound. Dvořák composed his work for the Vienna Philharmonic and after finishing it he wrote to his publisher: ‘I have made great efforts to produce this […] and it has also given me much pleasure.’
