Concert

Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony

What could be more Nordic than the Norwegian Edvard Grieg's music to Ibsen's "Peer Gynt" - music that belongs to the most popular treasure of the romantic 19th century. With his fellow countryman Vikingur Olafsson on piano, Bjarnason brings his own piano concerto "Processions" to the stage, music between electronics and classical, indie pop and chamber music.

A symphony orchestra from Iceland? The ensemble from the island of ice and fire is making an international career. The young conductor and composer Daníel Bjarnason, already celebrated in Europe and the USA, also comes from Reykjavik. Music of the North is at the centre of his programmes in Salzburg. What could be more Nordic than the Norwegian Edvard Grieg's music to Ibsen's "Peer Gynt" - music that belongs to the most popular treasure of the romantic 19th century. With his compatriot Vikingur Olafsson on piano, Bjarnason brings his own piano concerto "Processions" to the stage, music between electronics and classical, indie pop and chamber music. After the break, Tchaikovsky's splendid 4th Symphony, a work full of great Slavic soul, beautiful melancholy, fascinating melody and explosive dance lust, sounds.
