Nordic Masters

Internationally renowned conductor Osmo Vänskä and the New World Symphony dedicate an exclusive evening at the Adrienne Arsht Center to Scandinavia’s musical titans. Warm and inviting, Carl Nielsen’s grand sunrise ascends in what the composer calls a “joyous song of praise.” From its dramatic first four notes, Edvard Grieg’s Concerto was destined to be one of classical music’s greatest hits and is an unforgettable triumph in the hands of celebrated pianist Garrick Ohlsson. Surging with nationalistic pride, Jean Sibelius honors his Finnish homeland with his First Symphony—a formidable entrance into the world of symphonic giants.
