The National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain has commissioned a new work by Unsuk Chin which will be premiered at a concert at Sage Gateshead on 9 April. The programme, which also includes Bartok’s Concerto for Orchestra and Percy Grainger’s eccentric and elaborately-scored The Warriors, will be broadcast live on Radio 3 at 7:30pm, and will be repeated in Victoria Hall, Stoke-on-Trent on 10 April and London’s Royal Festival Hall on 11 April.

Chin’s new piece is entitled Mannequin and was commissioned to explore the unique teenage energy of the NYO.
