Nordic Tunes - Put on a sweater, because this week on Harmonia, we're touring the Nordic countries. Often left out of the discussion when it comes to early music, the regions of modern-day Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Iceland have fascinating musical pasts. We'll hear from bards and religious reformers, local musicians and imported celebrities.
This week we bring you a selection of winter-themed highlights from the New York Philharmonic's storied discography. You will hear sleigh bells from Mozart, Mahler, and Leroy Anderson, Concertmaster Frank Huang leading Winter from Vivaldi's The Four Seasons, and selections from Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker.
