    Le Sacre du printemps

You think 20th-century music is complicated? Andris Nelsons demonstrates the contrary in this programme. Although Stravinsky’s Le Sacre du printemps turned the music world upside down at the premiere, the elemental force of its strongly rhythmic tonal language is conveyed spontaneously. The trumpet concerto by Mieczysław Weinberg is a discovery: a work of sparkling virtuosity and irony, with the Swedish trumpeter Håkan Hardenberger as soloist.
