Notes & Reviews:

The composer and conductor Emil Reesen (1887-1964) was a unique jack-of-all-trades in Danish music. He composed everything from film melodies to operettas and ballets for the Royal Theatre, and it was all typified by his masterly craftmanship and great melodic talent. On this CD you can hear examples of his infectious, brilliant orchestral music, including the rhapsody Himmerland, the imposing Festival March and the fiery dances from the ballet Gaucho.
