Sibelius And Nielsen.


  • Sibelius Symphony No. 326′
  • Mahler Songs from Des Knaben Wunderhorn20′
  • Nielsen Symphony No. 535′

“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.

CBSO+ 6.15pm: A piano recital performed by the rising stars of Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.
