Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse

Soloists of the Royal Danish Orchestra perform an lively program of all-Scandinavian music in Lincoln Center’s intimate Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse. The evening features music by Carl Nielsen, whose modern melodies are a part of the Danes’ shared consciousness, and Johan Svendsen, for many years the Orchestra’s principal conductor, whose compositions, along with Grieg’s, are the culmination of the Romantic Scandinavian tradition.

SVENDSEN: String Octet, Op. 3, for four violins, two violas, and two cellos
NIELSEN: Wind Quintet, Op. 43, for flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, and French horn
