The Denver Philharmonic presents a concert highlighted by Danish composer Carl Nielsen's Symphony no. 4, subtitled Inextinguishable. Writing against the backdrop of World War I, Nielsen composed this fiery and dramatic symphony to convey, in his words, "the elemental Will of Life. Music is Life and, like it, inextinguishable." The final movement's duel between two sets of timpani is a highlight of this 20th-century masterpiece. The program also includes Edward Elgar's Cello Concerto, performed by "adventurous cellist" (according to the New York Times) Jay Campbell. Arrive an hour early for an informal pre-concert chat to learn insights about the music and stay after the show for a reception where you'll have a chance to meet the soloists.
