Nielsen Symphony No.3
Soloists Nicola Ihnatowicz and Oskar McCarthy
Vaughan Williams Oboe Concerto
Soloist Caroline Marwood
Strauss Suite from ‘Der Rosenkavalier’
Nielsen’s 3rd Symphony (the ‘Espansiva’) is light and joyous – not ‘typical’ Nielsen at all. Its famous slow movement, which Nielsen himself described as a ‘landscape Andante,’ uses offstage solo voices to marvellous effect.
