The Cyprus Youth Symphony Orchestra welcomes September and the inauguration of a new season with a concert of symphonic masterworks on September 7. Simply titled Symphonic Masterworks, the concert will bring the young musicians to the stage of the Nicosia Municipal Theatre joined by a soloist on the piano and under the direction of the conductor Yiorgos Kountouris.
The featured soloist is the young pianist and former member of the orchestra Lambis Pavlou, who will perform Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, an objet d’art inspired by Paganini’s 24th Capriccio. The orchestra with its refined sound, passion and unique performing style, will also interpret Sibelius’ famous tone poem Finlandia as well as Mozart’s Symphony no. 40, perhaps the most well-known symphonic work of all time.
Concert by the Cyprus Youth Symphony Orchestra. September 7. Nicosia Municipal Theatre, Nicosia. 8.30pm. €12. www.cyso.org.cy. Tel: 22-46314
