Greig Piano Concerto
Sibelius Nightride and Sunrise
Grieg Piano Concerto
Nielsen Symphony No 4 ‘The Inextinguishable’
John Storgårds Conductor
Christian Ihle Hadland Piano
“Music is life” declared Carl Nielsen “and like it, inextinguishable!” He proved it with his tremendous Fourth Symphony – music that leaves you thrilled to be alive. John Storgårds knows exactly how to make it catch fire, but first, he takes us on a bracing sleigh-ride through his native Finland, and introduces the acclaimed young Norwegian pianist Christian Ihle Hadland, in Grieg’s hugely popular Piano Concerto.
