Upcoming concerts

Fri 24.11.23 20:00

Nielsen 3 & Tetzlaff plays Sibelius

In Nature’s Realm, a concert overture by Antonín Dvořák, sounds like a landscape painting of the peaceful forests surrounding the Czech composer’s home village. The counterpoint at the end of this work is an ode to Johann Sebastian Bach.
