Episode 165: Film shoot: warm-up rehearsals with the Australian Youth Orchestra

Nice interviews this morning with two of the next generation of Australia's formidable classical musicians.
The Australian Youth Orchestra is preparing itself for the arrival of Joshua Bell and Maestro Christoph Eschenbach who, no doubt, will be really surprised at the high level of this group of young musicians (16-25 year-olds). After the concerts in Sydney and Melbourne, the European Tour begins.
Check out the itinerary.

I spent a couple of hours filming their first run through of Rimsky Korsakov's Schehrazade. Impressive. Video to follow in the next episode. (here it is)

It was an early morning start: moving out of Sydney accommodation (I'm heading down to Melbourne for the week as Rini's done with her latest opera at the Opera House). 
The edit was slowed down by the difficulty of deciding what to cut from the interviews, as they were so good. Positive stuff that you really want to include, but you have to keep it short.
Check out the orchestra's youtube channel:
