 Leaflet

The Spring Equinox has just past and in the far north thoughts are turning to Spring. In Scandinavia the long, dark nights are gone for another year and as the sun brings heat and light, new life springs up. What better way to celebrate one of the most magical times of the Scandinavian year than with the fresh, warm voice of Inger Dam-Jensen. Described by the Financial Times as “a soprano who has everything – great looks, a sparkling voice that never loses its quality, glittering allure and intensity”, she presents songs evoking the magic, mystery and magnificence of Europe’s northern lands. On either side stand two monumental masterpieces from the great Scandinavian symphonists of the 20th century. Nielsen’s symphony, which celebrates the inextinguishable joys of nature, might also be familiar to fans of the animated Nodame Cantabile series. It featured in the last episode of the Paris Chapter.

“More riveting than the music itself was the sight of the orchestra’s Danish conductor Thomas Dausgaard, moulding the rhythmic profile of each phrase as if it were putty. He has a wonderful way of bringing out the tension in a phrase, the way it pulls back or pushes forward against the surface rhythm.” Ivan Hewett, The Telegraph
