Shéhérazade, Suite symphonique, op. 35
The Festival d'Aix programme includes a symphonic session for talented young musicians from the Sud PACA region of France and from around the Mediterranean basin. The session aims to let them experience the pleasure of playing from the major symphonic repertoire. Conducted and trained by famous conductors and supervisors such as Pablo Heras-Casado and the musicians of the London Symphony Orchestra, these young musicians have the opportunity to live a unique, complete experience in a stimulating environment. Focused on the character of Sheherazade and on the piece Votrys by Christina Athinodorou, this symphony concert given by the Mediterranean Youth Orchestra 2017 was the grand finale of the sixty-ninth edition of the Festival d’Aix.
