Notes & Reviews:

Some of the music in this collection, while central to the Danish repertoire, may not be familiar to an international audience. The same holds true of the conductors who are now distant from our own time. This compilation offers an opportunity for listeners to become acquainted with new repertoire and conductors.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
Three other conductors lead just one work each. In HC Lumbye's Dream Pictures (1846), a fluffy eight-minute tone poem reminiscent of lively Schubert with a touch of Rossini and toy soldiers, Laury Grondahl (1886-1960) gets superb, infectious playing from the orchestra. Harald Saeverud's Galdreslätten (1942), where lushly romantic music with a tuba solo evolves into strange treble woodwinds and further into a march reminiscent of Vertigo with bizarre militaristic accents, was used as a protest against Nazi occupation of Norway; famed Russian conductor Nicolai Malko conveys it well. Italian Egisto Tango get fine playing in Nielsen's Saga-Dream.
