JOIN DON TO SAVOUR THE FINEST IN SCANDINAVIAN CLASSICAL MUSIC!

UNDER THE MIDNIGHT SUN:
A SCANDINAVIAN CLASSICAL MUSIC FESTIVAL

Come and enjoy a feast of some of the most colourful and melodic music in the world! In this enchanting survey of Scandinavian classics, Don Anderson takes you beyond the familiar works of Grieg and Sibelius (although they’re included, of course!) to mine a treasure chest of engaging, mostly folk-flavoured works from Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Iceland, spanning the eighteenth to the twentieth centuries. Examples of authentic folk melodies will show you the roots of this music. Featured performers on CD and DVD include conductors Leonard Bernstein, Sir Simon Rattle, Neeme Järvi, Sir Colin Davis, Herbert von Karajan and Sir Thomas Beecham, pianist Emil Gilels, violinists Maxim Vengerov and Gil Shaham, singers Barbara Bonney and Anne Sofie von Otter, and percussion superstar Dame Evelyn Glennie.
