Concert Highlight: Nielsen’s Symphony No. 4, “The Inextinguishable”
We recently made a video featuring Symphony Principal Timpanist and Percussionist Todd Miller and Robert Slack, respectively, on the great timpani battle at the end of the fourth movement of Nielsen’s evocative and emotional Symphony No. 4, dubbed “The Inextinguishable” after its inspiration, what Nielsen referred to as “the will to live” in his writings about the piece.
Check out this concert highlight from that same movement, from last weekend’s “Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto” concert!
