Carl Nielsen was a force of nature; and from his rural youth to his irrepressible creative maturity, he found an unquenchable source of inspiration in the Danish countryside. His Sinfonia Espansiva is a great wordless hymn to nature, by turns sunlit, rapturous and explosive, and with soprano Liv Redpath and baritone Johan Reuter adding their voices to Fabio Luisi's performance it's never sounded more individual – or inevitable. Ulla Miilmann is the soloist in the brilliant Flute Concerto, offering a fresh angle on a true 20th-century classic, and the programme opens with a rare glimpse of Nielsen the dramatist: the prelude to Act II of his powerful Biblical opera Saul and David.
