With «The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra» the Tonkünstler Orchestra presents a modern classic of musical education. Benjamin Britten brilliantly communicates the workings of an orchestra. Reworked and adapted to the needs of today’s young generation, this orchestral work offers an ideal introduction into a deeper understanding of the instrumental groups and the particular features of individual instruments. Based on a magnificent baroque theme by Henry Purcell, this collection of variations surveys the range of tonal colours within the orchestra and how they can interact.
