This event has been and gone.
Nielsen Symphony No. 1
Programme to include:
Joseph Haydn: Symphony No.82 (Bear)
Ludwig Van Beethoven: Violin Concerto
Carl Nielsen: Symphony No.1 in G minor
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.
