- Sibelius Symphony No. 3, 26′
- Mahler Songs from Des Knaben Wunderhorn, 20′
- Nielsen Symphony No. 5, 35′
“Music is life!” declared Carl Nielsen – and Sibelius would have agreed. His Third Symphony was inspired by a voyage to England, and you can almost taste the sea air. Nielsen’s Fifth, meanwhile, sets a single drummer against the whole orchestra: at stake, the survival of life itself. Big music and elemental forces: Mahler’s lovely, folk-flavoured songs will form a magical interlude.
