THE INEXTINGUISHABLE SYMPHONY

About This Concert
Heitor Villa-Lobos is considered the single most significant creative figure in 20th-century Brazilian art music! He wrote more than two thousand pieces during his lifetime, and often combined European classical styles with Brazilian folk music (think tangos turned into a symphony).
Danish composer Carl Nielsen wrote his Fourth Symphony during the early years of World War I, describing the symphony saying “Music is life, and like life, inextinguishable!” The work is notable for its dueling sets of timpani (set on opposite sides of the stage) in something of a battle between order and chaos.
