For far too many, the word "Danish" conjures only images of pastries -- and maybe a line or two from Hamlet. But Nordic Sounds, the bracing new program from Maestro Scott Speck and the Chicago Philharmonic, might just change all that. Speck begins this musical trip to Denmark with the Overture to Hamlet, Tchaikovsky's dramatic portrayal of the famous (Danish) prince. Then (Danish) violinist Christina Åstrand performs the Midwest premiere of the exhilarating Romantic-era violin concerto of Niels Gade (also Danish). Then comes a whimsical work from Arvo Pärt (not Danish, but close, Estonian), If Bach Had Been a Beekeeper. Finally comes the First Symphony of Carl Nielsen (You guessed it ... Danish), an unforgettable and highly accessible piece full of Nielsen's youthful verve. Learn More
