Dausgaard conducts Nielsen: Symphony No.2
Bartók: The Wooden Prince (c.48 mins)
Nielsen: Symphony No.2 'The Four Temperaments' (c.32 mins)
Thomas Dausgaard: conductor
A handsome prince, a beautiful princess, and a well-meaning fairy: it’s the stuff of children’s stories. But this is a fairy-tale with claws, and there are some startling surprises in store as we venture into the flamboyantly colourful world of Bartók’s 1914/17 ballet The Wooden Prince – Hungary’s answer to The Firebird. Then enjoy Carl Nielsen’s quirky Second Symphony (a musical depiction of human personality ‘types’ according to the Ancient Greeks) in the first of three concerts that bring our Nielsen cycle with Chief Conductor Thomas Dausgaard to completion.
