Romeo and Juliet
Tchaikovsky’s orchestral fantasy and Nielsen in Italian.
Wednesday 4 October 2023 18.00Ends approximately 19.00
The Carl Nielsen International Competition has been held in Odense, Denmark every three years since the 1970s. First place in 2022 in the flute category went to the young Italian flute player Alberto Navarra – and as the soloist in Carl Nielsen’s Flute Concerto, we can see why.
Italian Daniela Musca conducted at the latest Carl Nielsen competition in 2022. She debuted with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra at a summer concert in 2021 and was promptly invited to return. She now leads the orchestra in Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet, and the emotional music draws is into a love story that is tragic and famous in equal measure.
First we hear an energetic overture by German Emilie Mayer. She was one of the most significant German symphonic composers in the period between Schumann and Brahms and composed numerous large-scale works in the genre – inspired by Beethoven, among others.
