In spring 2024, Prof. Lancelot Fuhry will return to the conductor's stand with the LJO Berlin. The Berlin native enjoys great popularity in the orchestra due to his intensive rehearsal atmosphere and thrilling musicality and has already impressed the audience several times with his extraordinary programs.

At this year's Easter concert, the state youth orchestra is dedicating itself to the tragic and combative power of music.

In his Egmont Overture, Beethoven deals with the plot of Goethe's tragedy “Egmont”. The resistance against oppression and foreign rule is cleverly expressed.

In keeping with the instrument of the year, the young musicians accompany tuba player Donath Rehm in Edward Gregson's tuba concert. Characterized by contrasting movements, lyrical themes and rhythmic characteristics, it takes the listener into the tonal diversity of this rarely seen solo instrument.

The focus of the concert is Dmitri Shostakovich's powerful 5th Symphony. Influenced by socialist realism and the oppression during the Stalinist Terror, the work provides an insight into a turbulent emotional world. Behind resistance and the splendor of triumph, abysses open up: grotesque, cheerful themes are followed by nostalgia and deep despair. In the supposed jubilation there is a sense of threat and tragedy.
