Huge success for Chad Hoopes and Kristjan Järvi with NYO on UK tour

By April 15, 2016Uncategorized

Kristjan Järvi and Chad Hoopes were met with an ecstatic audience as well as rave reviews as they “brought the house down” (George Hall for Guardian, read the full review here) on their tour with the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain at London’s Royal Festival Hall, Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall and the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall. The Blaze of Youth programme featured Stravinsky’s Fireworks and Firebird and Michael Daugherty’s Violin Concerto Fire and Blood. The two previously worked together on a recording of the Mendelssohn and Adams violin concertos with Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra.
