Kristjan Järvi conducts Tchaikovsky and Messiaen

Kristjan Järvi presents works that focus on happiness and salvation with, in the words of the press, “masterly conducting”. Carl Nielsen’s Overture En Fantasirejse til Færøerne dreams of the natural landscape of the Faroe Islands, before Olivier Messiaen’s L’Ascension, sometimes ecstatic, sometimes deeply meditative, reflects on Christ’s ascension and the redemption of man. Finally, we experience man’s struggle for happiness in the face of destiny in Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony.
