- Program Description
This special showcases the final concert played by the New England Conservatory's Youth Philharmonic Orchestra during its 1993 cultural exchange tour to Chile. This program is the follow-up to La Plaza's "Symphonic Journey," which aired January 1994. The all-Tchaikovsky bill, performed by the YPO and its Chilean musical counterparts at Santiago's Teatro Municipal before an audience that included Chilean President Patricio Alywin, was conducted by YPO conductor Benjamin Zander. In this program, Zander discusses Tchaikovsky, his Symphony No. 5 and the experience of working with the young musicians on a nine-concert, seven-city sellout tour.
