The Nicolai Malko Competition for Young Conductors 2021: Finals With the Danish National Symphony Orchestra

About

The suspense is exquisite at the DR Koncerthuset in Copenhagen: it's the grand finale of the Nicolai Malko Competition for Young Conductors! This prestigious competition, organized by the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, has been held every three years since 1965. Fabio Luisi, the DNSO's current chief conductor and the chairman of this year's competition, "[hopes] to meet great talents among these musicians... a fresh way to present music, to approach music, and to work with orchestras. For young conductors ... the only way to improve their skills is to be confronted with an orchestra—confronted with other colleagues and other conductors."

For the final round, our intrepid young artists will once again lead the dynamic DNSO in two works: the first movement of a symphony by Shostakovich, drawn at random on June 10—and finally the Overture from the opera Maskarade by Danish great Nielsen.
