Osmo VänskäConductor
Osmo Vänskä conducts
exhilarating musical
invention from Beethoven
and Nielsen, both
celebrating the human
ability to find hope in the
face of oppression and
suffering. Between them
Mozart’s lyrical classic is
played by a clarinettist of
the first order and there’s a neglected tone-poem,
Eventyr, evoking the colour and spirit of Norwegian
folk tales, from one of this year’s anniversary
composers. Delius’s amanuensis, Eric Fenby, saw the
piece as the very apex of the composer’s skill yet,
surprisingly, it has only appeared once previously at
the Proms.
