The promotion of young musicians is the focus in the 1st Symphony Concert in the 2022/23 season. For this reason, the Staatsorchester Stuttgart invites the young musicians of its Sponsorship Orchestra, the Landesjugendorchester Baden-Württemberg, to its symphony concert. Together, they will perform a joint programme in the Liederhalle. The LJO musicians under the direction of Christoph Altstaedt will first present Antonín Dvořák's Eighth Symphony, before they join the Staatsorchester Stuttgart and Joel Sandelson for the festive Froissart Overture by Edward Elgar. The British composer was inspired by the knightly tales of the medieval chronicler Jean Froissart. Afterwards, Noa Wildschut, one of the most promising artists of her generation, will perform Schottische Fantasie by Max Bruch, where Scottish folk melodies and bagpipe imitations resound. While Bruch's Fantasia was inspired by the works of Scottish writer Walter Scott, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy's own impressions of the Scottish landscape during his journey in the spring of 1829 prompted him to compose the his Third Symphony. Impressed by a visit to the Palace of Holyroodhouse, he wrote to his family: "In the deep twilight today, we went to the palace where Queen Mary lived and loved. (...) The chapel beside it is now missing its roof and grass and ivy grow in abundance (...) Everything is broken and rotten, and the cheerful sky shines through. I think I have found the beginning of my Scottish Symphony.”
