Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine, February 2016
There's some fascinating revealing of unlikely counterpoints in the Second Symphony... his big-boned Sixth Symphony makes the most of all those frantic interruptions and is more poker-faced than Laurel and Hardy... there is some fine Nielsen playing here.

BBC Music Magazine, March 2016
There's a prevailing freshness and briskness which draws on the excellent Frankfurt Radio Symphony's playing, especially the clean-cut brass, to emphasise Nielsen's clarity, a contrast to the lush post-Romanticism then fashionable in central Europe... [this] spare, clear-sighted view of Nielsen is refreshing and impressive.
