The Carl Nielsen International Competition's President on the composer's legacy
This weekend marks the 90th anniversary of the death of Carl Nielsen, and one of the most prominent flag-bearers for his legacy today is the Carl Nielsen International Competition. In this week’s Gramophone podcast, Editor Martin Cullingford talks to the competition's President, the violinist and conductor Nikolaj Szeps-Znaider, about some innovative changes to next year's edition – and about the music of the composer it's named after.
This week's Gramophone Podcast is in association with Leipzig – the City of Music, where in June and July 2022 the Leipzig Opera Festival will focus on the music of Wagner. For full information at visit wagner22.de
