Ulster Youth Orchestra: Tchaikovsky Fantasy Overture ‘Romeo and Juliet’

Ulster Youth Orchestra have released a recording of  Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet’s Fantasy Overture. Due to the challenges of the pandemic the Orchestra’s ten-day course moved online resulting in over 50 musical activities and 14 recordings. The highlight of the course was the appearance of Daniele Rustioni, the Ulster Orchestra’s Chief Conductor, who directed the 70 young musicians in an ambitious recording of Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet’s Fantasy Overture, recorded separately at home on phones and tablets and carefully stitched together by producer Tom Wall from TW Post. You can watch the recording on the Ulster Youth Orchestra’s YouTube page.
