Introduction/abstract

European Union Youth Orchestra · Baiba Skride · Vasily Petrenko

Nielsen, Pärt, Alfvén, Sibelius

Austere, yearning and elemental: Europe’s northern lands. Arvo Pärt wrote a soundtrack for his Estonian homeland, Carl Nielsen is Denmark’s national composer, Hugo Alfvén’s music evokes the natural world of Sweden, and Jean Sibelius’s First Symphony is radical landscape painting in music. This powerful portrait of the European north is performed by the European Union Youth Orchestra with Vasily Petrenko and Latvian violinist Baiba Skride.
