Notes & Reviews:

Carl Nielsen is one of Denmark's most prominent composers. Nielsen developed his own musical language, which sometimes borders on atonality, from the starting point of sixteenth and seventeenth century polyphony, Brahms' chamber music, Grieg's piano works and Svendsen's symphonic works. Carl Nielsen's six symphonies were to become particularly famous - and all six are to be found on this edition. In addition the compilation features orchestral works, various concertos, chamber and piano works as well as songs. Since 1994 Nielsen's works have been revised, not only in musicological terms but also in regards to performance practice - any obvious shortcomings have been removed or improved upon and the results can be assessed by listeners. Carl Nielsen's works are now to be enjoyed as they should be.
