City of Leeds Youth Orchestra
Dougie Scarfe – conductor

Elgar – Overture: Cockaigne
Elgar – Lux Aeterna (Nimrod)
Shostakovich – Symphony No 7 (Leningrad)

The City of Leeds Youth Orchestra’s performances under its conductor Dougie Scarfe are one of the great success stories of music making in the region. The orchestra now numbers nearly 100 young musicians and this programme is perfect to show off these wonderful young talents.

CLYO’s British orchestral heritage is on show in the first half with Elgar’s depiction of London town, a work he dedicated to “My many friends, the members of British orchestras". Then a unique moment - Elgar’s most famous piece of music – _Nimrod_ from his _Enigma Variations_ set to words of the requiem mass in a moving eight part unaccompanied choral arrangement. CLYO sings!  

Shostakovich’s Seventh Symphony remains a uniquely resonant revelation of a chapter in 20th-century history. Written during the siege of Leningrad in the Second World War and dedicated to the people of that city, it remains, almost seventy years on, one of the most powerful of all symphonic works and a perfect vehicle for the talents of our amazing next generation of musicians.
