CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Performance Wednesday, February 11, 2015 | 8 PM

Danish National Symphony Orchestra

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Sibelius’s Violin Concerto bustles with a restless energy, opening with a hair-raising cadenza that’s a virtuosic high-wire act for the soloist. “Music is life, and like it, inextinguishable,” Nielsen wrote on the score of his “Inextinguishable” Symphony. It’s an intense orchestral journey from despair to victory, featuring a dramatic duel between two sets of timpani in the final section before the triumphant finale.
