British flautist Adam Walker landed the plum job of principal flautist with the London Symphony Orchestra aged only 21. He performs Nielsen’s witty and imaginative Flute Concerto, 15 years after demonstrating his astonishing virtuosity with this signature showpiece as a finalist in the 2004 BBC Young Musician of the Year.
Scandinavian conductor Daniel Blendulf directs stirring symphonies by “Father of the Symphony” J Haydn and his admired friend WA Mozart, a composer which Haydn described as “the greatest composer known to me by person and repute”.
