Thanks to @GilbertConducts & @nyphil, I finally get to hear my favorite Nielsen Symphony (The Inextinguishable) live: bit.ly/1nLjhQF

11 March 2014

Listen: Inextinguishable Nielsen

"To many Europeans in 1916, life may have seemed merely a difficult prelude to mass death. Yet in that despairing year, the Danish composer Carl Nielsen wrote his Fourth Symphony, The Inextinguishable, a work full of burgeoning, yearning, optimism, and ferment. You can practically hear the buds push through the blood-soaked battlefield. Alan Gilbert conducts that piece, plus the Symphony No. 1 and the Helios Overture, as part of his ongoing championship of a composer he has affectionately described as “traditional” but a “little bit odd.” —New York Magazine

Student Rush available Wed. through Fri.

Lovely, Actually

Why is this scene so moving? 1. Emma Thompson as a wife who just learned her husband has strayed. 2. Vince Mendoza’s churning arrangement of Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides, Now,” which won a Grammy in 2001. Mendoza arranged Mary Chapin Carpenter’s songs that you’ll hear Friday and Saturday. He’ll conduct, too. Thompson stars in Sweeney Todd March 5–8. See, it all comes together.

Student Rush tix are available for Friday: call (212) 875-5656 or visit the Avery Fisher Hall Box Office Monday–Friday, 10am–6pm. (Not available online at the moment. Sorry.)

Orchestra members aboard one of EVA Air’s Hello Kitty planes, flying from Tokyo to Taipei, 12:45pm, Feb. 16. Unclear whether it was Hello Kitty Speed Puff, Hello Kitty Loves Apples, or Hello Kitty Happy Music. Let’s say it was the last one. (Photo by Chris Lee)
