Notes & Reviews:

Best known for his 'Six Symphonies', Nielsen's other orchestral pieces and his incidental music for theatre is among the finest of its time. 'Aladdin' was his most important work for a theatre production. The most popular work in this collection, 'The Marketplace in Ispahan', superimposes four different musical ideas to evoke the sensation of sound coming from all sides of a market arena.

Classical Candor
These pieces ... demonstrate Nielsen's ability to evoke atmosphere and mood, which Witten nicely amplifies ... It's a pastoral piece, mostly sweet and relaxed, at least under Witten, becoming more vivacious as it goes along, then fading off into silence. It's quite affecting, really
