A Great Dane - Andrew Mellor on Carl Nielsen
Manage episode 301978775 series 2739605
The fascinating life and music of Danish composer Carl Nielsen (1865-1931) is the topic of this week's show, and we are delighted to welcome back Andrew Mellor to the Presto Music Podcast to take us through his humble childhood on the island of Funen through to the international acclaim he received as one of the most modernistic symphonic composers of his generation. Andrew has established himself as something of a British cultural attaché to Scandinavia since moving to Copenhagen in 2015, and is well known for his contributions to BBC Radio 3's Record Review and Gramophone Magazine, and currently finishing his first book about Nordic identity in music.
