The Junge Deutsche Philharmonie justifiably calls itself the “Orchestra of the Future” – indeed, its members are some of the top students from German-speaking music conservatories and thus the professional orchestral musicians of tomorrow. The programme under the direction of John Storgårds, principal conductor of the BBC Philharmonic, comprises Sibelius’s Second Symphony, Bartók’s Miraculous Mandarin ballet music and Matthias Pintscher’s Violin Concerto mar’eh and offers a musical journey from late Romanticism by way of a modern classic to the present day. The soloist is violinist Leila Josefowicz, who demonstrates whenever she performs it just how enthralling contemporary music can sound.
