Paavo Järvi conductor

Martin Helmchen piano

Paavo Järvi’s unmissable Nielsen series continues with the ‘Inextinguishable’, a bracing celebration of the ‘elemental will to live’ climaxing in a thrilling duel between two sets of timpani. Such was Beethoven’s iron-clad will that he completed his mighty ‘Emperor’ Concerto as the walls of Vienna were crumbling around him and his hearing was fast-fading.
