Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

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?

Notes & Reviews:
