The German National Youth Orchestra and Ingo Metzmacher with the “Alpine Symphony”

Following its performance under the direction of Kirill Petrenko, the National Youth Orchestra of Germany is now making its second appearance at the Philharmonie to mark its 50th birthday – this time under the baton of Ingo Metzmacher. In the two works he conducts, two opposing worlds collide: the loud, vibrant, dynamic urban life of New York, portrayed musically by Edgard Varèse in his orchestral work Amériques, and the rural, contemplative world of the Bavarian mountains depicted by Richard Strauss in his Alpine symphony.
