    Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky: Symphony no. 5

  • Conductor

    Eivind Aadland

One of the most important roles of symphony orchestras the world over is to share their knowledge and enthusiasm with new generations of musicians. Each year since 2009, nearly 100 young people from music schools around Iceland have gathered together under the aegis of the Iceland Symphony to form the Iceland Symphony Youth Orchestra, with splendid results. Eivind Aadland, who has long since become a favourite with the Iceland Symphony and its guests, now conducts the Youth Orchestra for the second time. 

Tchaikovsky's Symphony no. 5 is one of the Russian master's most majestic orchestral works, a riveting and intense rendering of the “fate” theme that ultimately leads to victory. 

The Iceland Symphony Youth Orchestra is part of the ISO's ambitious education programme.
