Beethoven & Nielsen

Saturday 11 Apr 2015, 7.30pm
Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury


Paavo Järvi conductor

Martin Helmchen piano

Nielsen’s sound-world is filled with the forests, seas and mesmerising shore-lines of his native Denmark. He penned his Inextinguishable Symphony in 1916, formed against the backdrop of the First World War. Alongside, Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto is famous for its spellbinding slow-movement and the imperial majesty of its three opening chords.

This concert is part of the Nielsen Series
