The Sydney Youth Orchestra’s commemorative concert, Legends of Past will feature five extraordinary works, performed by some of Australia’s most gifted young musicians and promises to be a most significant performance as the Sydney Youth Orchestra joins Australia in commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the ANZAC legend.

Legends of Past includes the world premiere of celebrated young Australian composer Andrew Howes, Cathedra, depicting the powerful themes of loyalty, honour, loss, courage and mateship in a special tribute to mark the 100th Anniversary of the ANZAC landing at Gallipoli.

This will be followed by a world first, when the SYO presents an innovative combination of Adrian Sutton’s War Horse Suite, an orchestral work of epic proportions rooted in emotional 20th century symphonic language that includes evocative folk songs; preceded by a monologue of Loyal Creatures by Morris Gleitzman in a unique performance that promises the audience a heart-felt journey through time to feel the spirit of the ANZAC legend.

While the performance of Cathedra and War Horse Suite depict the tragedy of war on man and nature, the second half of the concert provides a powerful and uplifting repertoire acknowledging the redemptive powers of music and nature to restore peace through the virtuosic brilliance of Dimity Hall (Violin) and Julian Smiles (cello) as they join the Sydney Youth Orchestra in a performance of Brahms's Double Concerto for Violin and Cello.

Debussy's La Mer concludes this inspiring concert paying tribute to the power of nature and its ability to transcend human conflict and erase the evidence of the destructive power of man to leave the artists and audience with a profound sense of hope and the promise of a peaceful world.
