100. Music is life! Nielsen, Symphony no.4

A bold statement from composer Carl Nielsen, that music IS life, who demonstrates it with a breathtaking symphony of awesome power and overwhelming optimism. The perfect piece for Cacophony’s 100th episode: Nielsen Symphony No.4 The Inextinguishable (50 mins: podcast 15′, music 35′)

Music with pictures from the terrific Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia conducted by Dima Slobodeniouk – and check out the lovey smile and wink from the oboe player at 5’50”!

or on Spotify with the equally terrific Danish National Radio Symphony Orchestra and Michael Schønwandt. You can buy this as a download here.

I think Carl Nielsen looks like John Bercow, what do you think?
