Pick the Scandinavian Piece that Gives You Chills
Wednesday, December 12, 2012
The weather warmed up a bit earlier this week in New York, but our Showdown brings back the chill of winter with three Scandinavian masterpieces by Grieg, Sibelius and Nielsen.
Nearly 50% of you selected Sibelius' Symphony No. 2 in D Major, Op. 42. At noon we played the piece performed by the recently Grammy-nominated Minnesota Orchestra, under the direction of Osmo Vanska.
