Additional Information

Alexander Treger, conductor. Radu Paponiu, assistant conductor. Nigel Armstrong, violin.

Debussy, Prelude to An Afternoon of a Faun. Chausson, Poème, Op. 25. Saint-Saens, Introduction et rondo capriccioso Op. 28. Strauss, An Alpine Symphony, Op. 64.

Alumni return to join forces and perform one of Strauss’s largest non-operatic works: the score calls for 125 players, and depicts the spectacular climb up an Alpine mountain-top, from twilight to dusk.

Soloist Nigel Armstrong, who trained with the American Youth Symphony from 2008 to 2011 while studying at the Colburn Conservatory, won Fourth Prize at the Tchaikovsky Competition in 2011. He continues his ascent to international fame sharing his many talents in tango, bluegrass and classical music performances around the world.
