The Young Person's Guide To The Orchestra

The Young Person's Guide To The Orchestra

Benjamin Britten takes you on an epic tour of the instruments of the orchestra, with some of the catchiest and most charming music ever composed. Britten shows off the colours, ranges and charateristics of all the instruments of a modern symphonic orchestra. The piece is a great way to get to know the individual components of the orchestra, and it’s also a fantastic listen. At the concert hall of Snape Maltings, Marin Alsop gives short introductions to the instruments and the instrumental groups of the orchestra and conducts the Britten- Pears Orchestra, formed by young and exceptional musicians from all over the world.
