Notes & Reviews:

All six symphonies of Carl Nielsen in one collection, performed by the London Symphony Orchestra and legendary conductor Ole Schmidt. These recordings are what brought Schmidt his first international acclaim and established him as a foremost authority on performing his countryman's works, and these recordings are regarded as the finest made of these symphonies. This is a can't miss set at an excellent bargain price.

Penguin Guide
Ablaze with life, warmth and a sense of discovery, Ole Schmidt is a sure and penetrating guide, and his readings have an authentic ring to them, for he has real feeling for this glorious music.

Gramophone
The Inextinguishable and No.5 are amongst the best paced on record, No.4 preferable to Karajan on DG... devastating account of Sinfonia Semplice (No.6) is surely Schmidt's greatest achievement... No-one should jump to conclusions about this symphony before having heard the burning intensity Ole Schmidt brings to it.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: St. Giles' Church, Cripplegate, London, England (1974).
