The young and booming Danish soloist Elisabeth Nielsen has returned home from Vienna and Rome with plenty of artistic inspiration. The program that she has chosen to play comprises “Mozart sonata KV 333” and “Schumann Carnaval” and mirrors perfectly her great artistic intentions and qualities. As a part of the event, the young pianist will present facts about the music and talk about her plans for the future, sign CD’s, and respond to questions from the audience.
During the break, Nielsen Salons will serve a glass of wine with almond cookies while you will have the opportunity to enjoy the ongoing exhibition in the library hall.
Look forward to a spectacular cultural event in the unique historical context of the Round Tower!
