Notes & Reviews:

Composed immediately preceding, during and in the aftermath of World War I, these are two of Danish composer Carl Neilsen's greatest symphonic works. This is the first release in a projected complete BIS Neilsen cycle as interpreted by Sakari Oramo and the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. Mr. Oramo is Chief Conductor of the RSPO. Hybrid 5.0 Surround Sound Super Audio CD.

Gramophone Magazine, May 2014
Oramo's pathway through these incendiary works is valiant and thoughtful - even if he point-blank refuses to emerge from the skirmish with a bloodied nose...who could blame Oramo for wanting to carve out terrain to call his own?

The Guardian, 6th February 2014
This first instalment of a full set of the Nielsen symphonies suggests it could be very special: the performances have an irresistible momentum...In both symphonies the Stockholm orchestra responds wonderfully too.

BBC Music Magazine, May 2014
Oramo certainly knows how to generate and sustain a good current. Both of these symphonies are conceived as strong, purposeful wholes...Oramo also has a truly admirable way with phrasing Nielsen's long lines - his melodies are rarely as predictable as their opening motifs suggest.

MusicWeb International, 9th April 2014
These are thrilling performances...Oramo's grip on the music never fails, and he sees the [Fifth] symphony through to its hard-earned conclusion. These are central works in the canon of the 20th century symphony, and these recordings are a truly significant contribution to their performance history.
