Igor Strawinski: Le Sacre du Printemps
Unleashed – that’s how Andrés Orozco-Estrada appears when he conducts music from Latin America. The Colombian, who studied in Vienna, gave his debut in Graz and found success in Frankfurt, is the principal conductor of the hr-Sinfonieorchester. He becomes a fierce South American again when conducting the 120 enthusiastic young people of the “Colombian Youth Philharmonic2. Together with them, he works wonders, just like they began in neighbouring Venezuela with “El Sistema”. To Graz, the young musicians bring along ballet suites, mythical, stirring, Indian dances of tremendous elemental power. For Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring”, they have come up with their own powerful “orchestral choreography”.
