What to expect:

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 5 in E minor, op. 64


Tchaikovsky wrote his Fifth Symphony as a symbol for the tragedy of life:

Fate dominates throughout in the form of the oppressive recurring theme. It symbolizes the composer’s own crises: his failed marriage, his unfulfilled desire for young men and his isolation as an outsider in society. No other symphony could be better suited for the robust passion and verve of young musicians. Andrés Orozco-Estrada conducts the premiere of the styriarte Festival Youth Orchestra with all his usual emotion. The choreography for this exceptional orchestral project is by Adrian Schvarzstein.

The performance lasts 60-70 minutes without an interval.

Styriarte Youth Orchestra


A symphony orchestra of the most talented young musicians: This is what star conductor Andrés Orozco-Estrada asked for - and received - from the Styriarte. The members of the orchestra, founded in 2021 and selected by a top-class jury, all live and make music in Austria, but come from 18 different countries around the world.

Andrés Orozco-Estrada


Das Haus Styriarte ist ein wenig stolz darauf, dieses Dirigierphänomen einst frisch von der Ausbildung weg als Chefdirigenten (2005 bis 2009) des Großen Orchesters recreation engagiert zu haben. Heute glänzt der feurige Kolumbianer, geboren 1977, am Pult der bedeutendsten Klangkörper der Welt – und kehrt stets leidenschaftlich gern nach Graz zurück.

Adrian Schvarzstein


Wherever this man appears, he guarantees to surprise us. Adrian Schvarzstein, born in Buenos Aires in 1967, is not only an actor and clown of international renown, but with his directing works inspired by commedia dell'arte, street art and circus, he turns every musical theatre piece into an adventure for audience and artists alike.
