Youth is a state of mind. The great British pianist John Lill is 75 in March this year, but when Tchaikovsky hurls a grand piano against a full symphony orchestra in his tempestuous First Piano Concerto, you won’t find a more captivating soloist. The teenage Korngold’s Schauspiel Overture, meanwhile, is so brilliant that critics claimed his dad had written it for him! And Britten’s The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra is equally entertaining whether you’re eight or eighty – though when the singers of our superb youth choirs meet Liverpool composer Gary Carpenter for the new work written for them and colleagues around the country, we think you’ll be just as impressed.
