Runnning Riot! The first of a series of films from the musicians of National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain features Gabriela Ortiz' Téenek

During the Spring residency, musicians from the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain (NYO) recorded a series of performances of the boundary-breaking music in their Open Up: Running Riot! programme. They went beyond just playing in the orchestra and took a lead in interviewing their role models and engaging the audience with creative insights into the pieces, which include Gabriela Ortiz' Téenek, Dinuk Wijeratne's Concerto for Tabla & Orchestra, as well as a riotous performance of Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring.

The results can be seen on the orchestra's YouTube channel, with a new video premiered every Wednesday evening in October. Episode 1 was released on Wednesday and features Gabriela Ortiz Téenek, including an interview with Gabriela herself, interviewed by NYO musicians, Connie and Aidan.

See the video on YouTube.
