I can’t say I’m blown away by either version. There’s something sort of “high school marching band playing movie music” about it to me. But what do I know?

LSO:

Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra:

Here’s MTT talking about the YTSO:

My guess is — call my cynical — that everyone in the orchestra will be young or at least youngish. It is, after all, about the youtube folks, and looks matter. But then perhaps I’ll be proven wrong and a bunch of over 50 folks will audition. Ya think?

And no, I’m not auditioning. I’d love it if they wanted to bring along a few guest bloggers … now THAT would be fun! :-)

(I don’t see a single oboe or English horn when I click on “view” … so maybe no one is auditioning for those spots? Hmmm. Any readers/reeders out there going for this?
