Alan Gilbert leads The New York Philharmonic in Nielsen’s Flute Concerto, with principal flute Robert Langevin as soloist; and Nielsen’s Violin Concerto with soloist Nikolaj Znaider. The program is presented as part of The Nielsen Project — the orchestra's multi-season survey of the six symphonies and three concertos by Danish composer Carl Nielsen.
The program concludes with Tchaikovsky’s Second Symphony, which incorporated Ukrainian folk songs and is known as “The Little Russian.” Listen to the full show below:
