Christian Lindberg conductor
Those twentieth century blues. . . For Carl Nielsen, music was life. So, confronted with the aftermath of the Great War, he met the challenge head on. His Fifth Symphony is nothing less than a struggle for existence itself, told in music of volcanic power - one of those pieces that everyone should hear before they die. It's a gripping finish to a concert that begins with Leonard Bernstein's musical portrayal of one man's battle for justice on the mean streets of 50s New York - and which features a brand new work, written specially for the wind, brass and percussion of the Orchestra by tonight's conductor, Christian Lindberg.
