Program

The National Youth Orchestra of Catalonia ‎(JONC) is not only a training orchestra for young musicians but is also a high-level artistic project. Under the baton of Manel Valdivieso, the JONC will once again be one of the mainstays of the Festival Emergents Barcelona. To perform in their concert, the JONC has invited two young musicians to debut as soloists at L’Auditori. Russian pianist Evgeny Konnov, recent winner of the Maria Canals International Music Competition, will perform Piano Concerto No. 2, op. 16, by his compatriot Sergei Prokofiev. With this extremely challenging work, Prokofiev was able to overcome the criticism he received for his first concerto, referred to as ‘superficial’, with his lyrical and deeply emotional writing.
The second soloist who will be accompanying the JONC was chosen by its members and former members from among musicians who have previously formed part of the Orchestra. On this occasion it is horn player Carles Chordà who, at the age of only 25, is already a member of the Gran Teatre del Liceu Orchestra. Chordà will perform the Concerto for horn and orchestra in B-flat major, op. 91, by Russian composer Reinhold Glière. The work takes as a model Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Concerto for violin and orchestra. With this as a base, Glière exploits the technical and expressive potential of the horn to create a piece full of the epic and grandiose character of Russian symphonism.
