This first release, entitled “The Opening” to express NBO’s unapologetically fresh and innovative approach, conveys the raw energy of a group of young, open-minded and extraordinarily talented musicians performing traditional pieces of music by Sergei Prokofiev, Richard Wagner and Zoltán Kodály alongside a modern composition “The Horses of Saint Mark” by Serbian-born, internationally acclaimed composer Isidora Žebeljan.
“The Opening” was recorded at the Slovenian Philharmonic Hall in Ljubljana where NBO was headlining the Ljubljana Festival. No Borders Orchestra debut album “The Opening” has been released on Universal Music Austria/Deutsche Grammophon on March 24th, 2015.
