Gramophone Thu 11th December 2014

The orchestra of the Afghanistan National institute of Music play Mozart's Turkish Rondo

Here's a video of a youth orchestra playing Mozart with everything they have. But they're not quite your average youth orchestra...

Today, the BBC World Service in a research collaboration with King's College London revealed that in the month of November more than 5000 individuals were killed in Jihadist attacks, with 782 of those deaths occurring in Afghanistan.

Here is an inspirational film of students at the Afghanistan National Institute of Music (one of the mottos of the Institute is 'Build lives through music') playing an arrangement of Mozart's Turkish Rondo, filmed on November 30.
