Notes & Reviews:

The six symphonies of Carl Nielsen (on ALTO ALC 2505, 3CD), composed between 1890- 1925, rightly assume center stage when discussing his work. However there is much else to discover. This album features several of his more delectable morsels: His beloved and frequentlyperformed Little Suite for Strings; three pieces from his opera Maskarade (Overture, Prelude to Act II, Dance of the Cockerels); the prelude to Act II of his other opera, Saul and David; his rhapsody overture A Fantasy Voyage to the Faeroes; the mythological pastorale Pan & Syrinx; the tone poem Saga-Drom, based on the Icelandic epics; and the Danish patriotic composition The Mother.

MusicWeb International
You can relish this recommendable collection which concentrates on the lighter and more concise Nielsen (five of the nine tracks are theatre music). This is a vividly characterized and easily recommendable anthology and the Little Suite receives one of its most winning recordings ever.
