Thomas Søndergård and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales return for their fourth concert this season, opening with a suite from Nielsen's music for Oehlenschläger's play Aladdin. It's one of the composer's best-loved works, one that avoids musical clichés of the exotic Orient, conjuring scenes altogether more subtle and vivid. A major premiere by the orchestra's Composer-in-Association, B Tommy Andersson, puts organist David Goode in the spotlight and the concert concludes with the sunniest and most intimate of Mahler's symphonies - the concise Fourth, a work filled with birdsong and pastoral landscapes that features a child's-eye view of Heaven in its final movement.
