Concert

Nordic Moods I & II

Alain Altinoglu

Presentation

In this Scandinavian mini-festivalAlain Altinoglu builds bridges between our country and the far north of Europe and in doing so will bring together some little-known gems from Belgium with celebrated compositions from Norway and Finland. La Monnaie invites you on an enchanting sonic adventure: from César Franck’s demonic hunt via virtuoso concerti to the majestic swans of Jean Sibelius’s Symphony No. 5 and Edvard Grieg’s lyrical ‘Morning’ from Peer Gynt.
