CANCELLED due to Coronavirus - The Miraculous Tangerine and premieres from Scandinavia


  • Rehnqvist Silent earth
  • Abrahamsen Horn concert
  • Bartók The Miraculous Tangerine

Dima Slobodeniouk conducts new music by the Dane Hans Abrahamsen and the Swedish Karin Rehnqvist, and the moving ballet The Miraculous Mandarin by Béla Bartók.

Dima Slobodeniouk, the North, and folk music
Carl Nielsen is the figurehead of Danish music, but recently Hans Abrahamsen has been surpassing him. His song cycle Let me tell you was a colossal success, partly thanks to Barbara Hannigan. For the Berliner Philharmoniker and their principal hornist, he wrote a new Horn Concerto, a joint composition commission from the Berliner, the NHK Symphony Orchestra, the NTR Saturday Matinee and the Seattle Symphony Orchestra.
Dima Slobodeniouk is also working on a new work for choir and orchestra by Swedish composer Karin Rehnqvist. Rehnqvist draws inspiration from the fascinating folk music of the far north, particularly from the calls shepherds make to their cattle from the mountain pastures.

Bartók's answer to Le sacre du printemps
The Hungarian Béla Bartók was not only a fervent collector of folk music, but also a man with ambitions who wanted to achieve success with ballets and operas. In the ballet The Miraculous Mandarin, he undauntedly competes with Stravinsky' s Le sacre du print emps.
