Paavo Järvi: Nielsen Cycle

The Philharmonia and Paavo Järvi continue their exploration of Carl Nielsen

One of music's great originals, Nielsen wrote his Clarinet Concerto for his friend, the clarinettist Aage Oxenvad. Playful and peppered with sparks of wit, the concerto acts out a musical battle of wills between the clarinet and snare drum. Meanwhile, the composer’s Third Symphony grows from an opening motif that Nielsen is said to have jotted down on his sleeve while riding a streetcar. Over 6s only. Valid ID required. Tickets booked within the same transaction will be sat together. Tickets are allocated by the Philharmonia Orchestra.
