The NYOW is one of the longest established youth orchestras in the world, and depite often being overshadowed in terms of press coverage, there is no doubt that it is also one the finest orchestras of any kind in Europe. This scintillating performance of the London Symphony belies the youth of the players with an interpretation of immense depth, character and musicianship. Also included is the world premier recording of William Mathias’s Celtic Dances

“Very fine young Welsh players. The Celtic Dances is pretty well projected by conductor and orchestra”

Paul Ingram
