Paavo Järvi conductor
Viktoria Mullova violin
Tonight’s concert celebrates the work of three great symphonists at the height of their creative powers. Nielsen’s First was memorably described by one critic as ‘a child playing with dynamite,’ and if Haydn’s The Bear finds the old Master composing with a youthful pizzazz and energy, Beethoven’s Violin Concerto possesses a radiant lyrical expansiveness. This concert is part of a complete Nielsen symphony cycle conducted by Paavo Järvi, which is presented this season and next.
This concert is part of the Nielsen Series
