Debussy Ibéria
Lili Boulanger D’un matin de printemps
Coles Behind the Lines
Debussy La mer

The International Festival’s six-concert celebration of music and young people continues with Scotland’s own hugely accomplished ensemble, famed throughout its long history of exceptional performances for its energy, its insight and its musical exuberance.

Under the baton of internationally acclaimed British conductor Paul Daniel, NYOS explores the exquisite oceanic evocations of Debussy’s iconic La mer and the scintillating Spanish colours of his exotic Ibéria.

In between, two rarely heard masterpieces from a century ago: Lili Boulanger’s impressionistic conjuring of a spring morning and a remarkable, poignant work by Scottish composer Cecil Coles, written while the composer was stationed in France during the First World War.
