 NORWAY | SWEDEN | DENMARK | GERMANY | NETHERLANDS
The Palestine Youth Orchestra brings its mix of high energy symphonic and Arabic music, performing at some of the regions most exciting concert venues. The musicians will be resident in Kristiansund, Norway, where they will perform on 4 August, before concerts in Trondheim (5 Aug), Oslo (7 Aug), Gothenburg (8 Aug), Copenhagen (10 Aug), Aarhus (11 Aug), Bremen (13 Aug) and Apeldoorn (15 Aug). They finish their tour at the world-famous Concertgebouw in Amsterdam (16 Aug), making their debut performance in the Netherlands.

Conducted by the Dutch conductor Vincent de Kort.

The PYO will be joined by Palestinian singer Nai Barghouti, a rising star in the international world music scene. She performs three specially orchestrated songs, originally performed by the legendary singer Fairuz. In Copenhagen they are joined by Danish cellist Toke Møldrup at the Tivoli Concert Hall performing Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations, and in Apeldoorn they present an incredible shared performance with the National Youth Orchestra of the Netherlands featuring music devised by both orchestras, based on Arabic music. In addition to their symphonic concerts, they will present chamber concerts in Kristiansund, Aarhus, Bremen and Amsterdam, a brilliant way to see the orchestra in a different light.

In a programme celebrating LOVE, the PYO will also perform music from Bizet’s Carmen, Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet, Saint-Saens Samson and Delilah, and Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde. There will be a rare opportunity to hear music by Salvador Arnita, an organist and composer from Jerusalem, and a world premiere by the Palestinian film composer Faris Badarni. Badarni’s Palestinian Rhapsody celebrates the sounds, peoples and cultures of Palestine.
