About Edinburgh International Festival: Colburn Orchestra
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!

Barber | Violin Concerto
Rachmaninov | Symphonic Dances
Exceptional emerging musicians from esteemed Los Angeles Colburn Conservatory of Music form the Colburn Orchestra, one of the world’s most vibrant youth ensembles. With extensive touring and recording to its name, its performances are bold and daring, full of finesse and fiery flamboyance.
Concluding the International Festival's six-concert celebration of music and young people, eminent French conductor Stéphane Denève, celebrated for his colourful, sensual music making, directs the Colburn players in Rachmaninov’s kaleidoscopic Symphonic Dances, muscular music of immense power and fantasy.
They are joined by the remarkable young US violinist Simone Porter, herself a former Colburn student, for the golden lyricism and blazing fiddle fireworks of Barber’s tender Violin Concerto. Denève opens the concert with Esa-Pekka Salonen’s dazzling, dream-like evocation of the Greek goddess of the night.
