Notes & Reviews:

When the bicentenary of the birth of the Danish fairy-tale writer Hans Christian Andersen was celebrated in 2005, the Danish National Symphony Orchestra and its chief conductor Thomas Dausgaard were at the forefront with a magnificent musical celebration. This CD release testifies to the meeting between Andersen's immortal storytelling art and the two late Romantic composers August Enna and Alexander von Zemlinsky, who drew musical inspiration around 1900 from two of the storyteller's best loved tales.
