BBC Home Service Midland

(Leader, Reginald Stead )
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Henry Hoist (violin)
The first of Carl Nielsen's three Concertos was written in 1911 immediately after the Third Symphony (Espansiva); it belongs to his sunniest period and is calmly joyful in character. Though it is not to be compared with the Sinfonia Espansiva, it has many characteristic touches, especially in the third (slow) movement. The design is unusual: two big quick movements, each preceded by a spacious slow one. The whole work progresses from the key of G to that of D. In the quietly humorous finale Nielsen deliberately avoids display; the music becomes, at the end, utterly simple and delicately poetic. Robert Simpson
