Symposium »Nielsen, der Unberechenbare«
Leitung: Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Sandberger

Carl Nielsen (1865–1931) is still relatively unknown in Germany. The Danish composer, violinist, and bandmaster does not fit into any box. His compositions are folksy, but he was not a national romantic who intended to set the former greatness of the Danes to music by evoking landscapes and myths. His works are of a completely independent power and logic. And yet he is not an avant-gardist: “Where does the music go? What remains? We don’t know!” For the SHMF focus on Nielsen, the keynote lecture and symposium will shed a light on the position of the Dane in music history. The presentations will address questions about the national composer, the “Nordic tone” in his music, and will take a closer look at individual groups of works, such as the string quartets. Parallel to the Nielsen symposium, the Brahms-Institut at the University of Music Lübeck is opening its new exhibition, which draws attention to “Brahms, the North German.”

In collaboration with the Brahms-Institut at the Musikhochschule Lübeck
The symposium is supported by the Possehl-Stiftung Lübeck.
