Love – for better or worse

The Norwegian National Youth Orchestra invites to a grand New Year’s Concert in Terningen Arena in Elverum. Together with the conductor Elim Chan and the international star Tine Thing Helseth as soloist, the Norwegian National Youth Orchestra proudly presents music that express different aspects of the beautiful but at the same time challenging love. The audience will hear Tsjaikovkij’s interpretation of the impatient and tragic love between Romeo and Juliet. Tristan and Isolde’s love story is also uncompromising, and it can hardly be expressed more beautiful than in Wagner’s Liebestod, “Love Death”, where Isolde sings out her love in sorrow over her loved one’s dead body. But love is also infinitely beautiful, and in the tradition of New Year’s Concerts, the orchestra will present the catchy overture to “Candide”, and the energetic overture to “Ruslan and Ludmila” by Glinka. Mahler’s Adagietto is known as one of the most beautiful movements ever written. The rumour says that it is a love statement from the composer to his wife Alma, but the music is also used in, for example, the movie “Death in Venice”.

The sound of Tine Thing Helseth’s trumpet playing is world-famous and the audience expect some magic moments when she here in Elverum will perform passionate tangos and melancholic songs. With Chan and Helseth in front, the Norwegian National Youth Orchestra will touch every string of love in the audience! We wish you all welcome to a varied and emotional New Year’s Concert!
