The European Youth Orchestra performs three gripping orchestral narratives: Tchaikovsky's hyper-Romantic portrayal of Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers with possibly the world's most famous love-theme, Janacek's powerful depiction of 3 episodes from Gogol's novel about Cossack bravery; and finally Berlioz's symphonic re-imagining of Byron's epic poem about the travels of a world-weary young man, disillusioned with a life of pleasure. Berlioz portrays the melancholy dreamer through the solo viola.
