Carl Nielsen/Hans Abrahamsen – Symphony No. 6 (Sinfonia Semplice) *
Abrahamsen’s (DK) transcription of Carl Nielsen’s Symphony No. 6 (Sinfonia Semplice) captures the essence of his enigmatic work and highlights the profound influence Nielsen has had on generations of composers.
This concert also introduces Victoria audiences to Analia Llugdar (Argentina/Canada), a composer of profound, refined and poetic esthetic, and welcomes back Ana Sokolovic (QC), with her infectious Balkan-style rhythms.
