Hear the United States Premiere of Hakola’s Clarinet Concerto performed by Finnish soloist Kari Kriikku! Then, experience the extraordinary and moving Symphony No. 4 (“The Inextinguishable”) by Danish composer Carl Nielsen. This work is one of Nielsen’s most dramatic, featuring a battle between two sets of timpani. Written during World War I and amidst great personal turmoil, Nielsen told his wife he wanted to compose a work that would express “the elemental will to live,” or “that which is inextinguishable.” In the foreword to the published version of the score, Nielsen wrote: “Music is Life, and, like it, Inextinguishable.”
