The NLCE has been quintet in residence at the National Youth Chamber Orchestra courses for ten years. Each year they enjoy spending several intensive days coaching young players on exciting chamber and orchestral repertoire. The orchestral repertoire is always performed without a conductor – so it makes for challenging but rewarding coaching! This year’s programme includes Haydn’s Symphony No.99 and Kodaly’s fantastically colourful Galanta Dances. To celebrate their tenth anniversary this year, they will be combining forces with members of the NYCO woodwind section to perform an extract from their new commission from Philip Cashian – Cortege – a wind dectet especially written for the NLCE to play alongside young musicians. The performance will take place on Monday 2nd April, alongside Martin Butler’s Dirty Beasts, narrated by the highly charismatic Paul Rissmann.
