Haydn Symphony No 99
Beethoven Piano Concerto No 1
Nielsen Symphony No 6

Sir Colin Davis conductor
Mitsuko Uchida piano
London Symphony Orchestra

Beethoven premiered his Piano Concerto in Prague in 1798 – as a prodigious soloist he gave himself grand and daring challenges. Haydn composed his 99th Symphony for a visit to London in 1793; it includes a strikingly elegiac wind choir. When Nielsen began work on his final symphony (1925), he thought it might prove ‘more amiable and smooth’ than his previous works. It is certainly irradiated by sunlight and shadows.
