About the Event

Experience classical music like never before in this astonishing performance of masterworks by Rachmaninov, Kendall and Stravinsky at the remarkable Schloss Grafenegg.

Schloss Grafenegg


For more than 30 years, Schloss Grafenegg has been a setting for events in a truly unique atmosphere. Its cultural programme attracts thousands of visitors every year, and Advent in Grafenegg has become a Lower Austrian institution. Building on this history, the Schloss Grafenegg estate is combined with one of the most ambitious cultural projects in Austria: an open‐air stage and a new concert hall should provide the necessary space for Schloss Grafenegg to establish itself as a unique cultural centre at an international level.

Artists

Conductor: Noseda, Gianandrea
Orchestra: European Union Youth Orchestra

The history of the European Union Youth Orchestra (EUYO) began in 1974 when the European Parliament’s Committee on Cultural Affairs and Youth laid the foundations of the orchestra. Their aim was to create a musical workshop where talented young European musicians could work together under the direction of internationally recognised great conductors to create productions to be performed each year in many cities of Europe.
With its realisation the European Union added to this goal that the orchestra should set an example of co‐operation with its work, demonstrating the achievement and creativity of European youth. The ensemble made its debut in 1978 under the direction of Claudio Abbado. Over the years leading conductors (Barenboim, Bernstein, Carlo Maria Giulini, Bernard Haitink, Karajan, Zubin Mehta, Rostropovich, Georg Solti) have worked with the orchestra. 140 young musicians are active in the EUYO. Each year more than four thousand young musicians aged between 14 and 23 apply to join the orchestra.
