NIELSEN Suite for Strings, Op.1
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 8
Often eclipsed by the relentless 7th and epic 9th symphonies, Beethoven’s 8th offers a witty exploration of essential musical questions. Rhythmical obsessions, “Haydnesque” humour and harmonic invention all play to the listener with unusual lightness. Discover Nielsen’s elegant and elegiac Little Suite for Strings - an auspicious first opus from the great Danish symphonist. Naohisa Furusawa conducts.
