Nielsen: Symphony No. 5 - Radio Filharmonisch Orkest o.l.v. Dmitri Slobodeniouk - Live concert HD

Het Radio Filharmonisch Orkest en dirigent Dmitri Slobodeniouk pakken uit met een echte Deense voltreffer, de Vijfde Symfonie van Carl Nielsen, de componist die dit seizoen centraal staat in het AVROTROS Vrijdagconcert. De Vijfde symfonie getuigt van Nielsens tomeloze expressiedrang. Hij vond het imago van de Deense muziek van zijn tijd “braaf en gezapig... Ik wilde krachtiger ritmes en modernere harmonieën.”

Opgenomen/recorded: AVROTROS Vrijdagconcert, 22 april 2016 in TivoliVredenburg te Utrecht.


Symphony No. 5, Op. 50, FS 97 is a symphony composed by Carl Nielsen in Denmark between 1920 and 1922. It was first performed in Copenhagen on 24 January 1922 with the composer conducting. It is one of the two of Nielsen's six symphonies lacking a subtitle.

The Fifth Symphony has a non-customary structure, comprising two movements instead of the common three or four. Written in a modern musical language, it draws on the theme of contrast and opposition. The post-World War I composition is also described as having elements of war.
