Notes & Reviews:

Thomas Dausgaard leads the renowned Danish National Symphony Orchestra in incredible performances of monumental symphonies by four of the greatest composers of the quintessential orchestral form. Dausgaard is an ideal conductor for these works, and his work here with the DNSO is a perfect example of what is possible when conductor and orchestra achieve true symbiosis. Critics have raved about Dausgaard's work in both live performances and on recordings: "a conductor of rare conviction and insight" - The Daily Telegraph "...Dausgaard crafted impressive musical sculptures at once monumental and intimately personal." - The Toronto Star

MusicWeb International
This was, far and away, the best orchestral DVD to come across my desk this year. Dausgaard proves to be an intelligent and perceptive interpreter of all four works, while his Danish players perform with a contagious sense of joy and virtuosity.
