Programme Note

Ives’s Fourth Symphony demands massive orchestral forces and quotes from his own earlier works as well as from traditional American hymns. Completing this year’s Nielsen concerto cycle is the Violin Concerto - a work that wears its technical demands with great delicacy. Nielsen also provides the concertopener, the folk-inspired choral cantata Springtime on Funen.
