NielsenNielsen and Beethoven  Beethoven


In the occasion of the 150 anniversary of Carl Nielsen nothing would be more natural than to program his vigourous and innovative piano music - and put it in the light of the trends and styles that shaped him. Classicism and the clear-cut form of Beethoven was one of those styles that influenced Nielsen strongly, which makes it obvious to program these 2 composers together. Born into different periods of history, both individually innovative, yet in many respects related in their understanding and feeling of music.
