We celebrate the 200th Birthday today of the great Danish story-teller Hans Christian Andersen with a major premiere based on his work. This concert forms part of a worldwide project, Symphonic Fairytales, for which ten Danish composers have contributed new works inspired by Andersen’s stories: we are delighted to be presenting the work of Denmark’s leading composer Per Nørgård, which uses orchestra, choirs, soloist and a narrator to tell one of Andersen’s last stories. It is followed by another great piece of story-telling, the collaboration between Andersen’s illustrious Norwegian contemporaries Edvard Grieg and Henrik Ibsen.

Carl Nielsen : Overture to 'Maskarade'
Per Nørgård : The Will O' The Wisps are in Town
