About the Programme
“I have an idea for a new work, which has no programme, but which will express what we understand by zest for life or expressions of life … where one would simply say, ‘This is life’.” Thus Carl Nielsen wrote of his Fourth Symphony, which he called “The Inextinguishable”. Composed between 1914 and 1916, it is considered to be a milestone in Scandinavian music, reflecting the events of the Great War with the dramatic timpani duel in the final movement. A life in harmony and the violence of nature are likewise synonymous with Desdemona and Othello in Antonín Dvořák ’s Othello Overture. Here, too, the timpani becomes a seismograph of the emotions. Between these two “life works”, conductor Antonio Pappano has placed Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 1, played by Yuja Wang. This Chinese pianist will pound the keys in the highly demanding solo part while caressing the delicate hues with ingratiating elegance.
