Nielsen, Nielsen, Nielsen! Symphony No.6
Carl Nielsen’s last symphony, No. 6, is humorous, down-to-earth and head-strong music which, with its many surprises, was to become a musical will full of good spirits and astonishment. The concert begins with Nielsen’s music for the tale of Aladdin, a sumptuous musical picture book with dances, processions and exotic moods, which the Danish National Symphony Orchestra is performing for the first time under Fabio Luisi.
