  • Overview

      The "Magic of Youth" concert celebrates the extraordinarily mature creations of young composers. The concert will begin with Felix Mendelssohn's Overture to a Midsummer Night's Dream, one of his most famous pieces, written in 1826, when he was just 17 years old. Then, the concert will follow with a selection of Franz Schubert pieces, including his famous Ave Maria. Schubert was wildly prolific, composing some 1,500 pieces, including over 600 songs. Since he died at 31 years of age, every piece he wrote was a youthful work! Finally, our program will close with Dmitri Shostakovich's Symphony No 1, the piece which launched his career, written when he was only 19 years old!
