Abrahamsen’s (DK) transcription of Carl Nielsen’s Symphony No. 6 (Sinfonia Semplice) captures the essence of his enigmatic work and highlights the profound influence Nielsen has had on generations of composers.
This concert also introduces Analia Llugdar (Argentina/Canada), a composer of profound, refined and poetic esthetic, and welcomes back Ana Sokolovic (QC), with her infectious Balkan-style rhythms.
