Notes & Reviews:

Two of the leading Danish conductors of the 1950s are featured on this release in performances of music by Carl Nielsen. Thomas Jensen studied with Nielsen and played under his baton. His interpretation of the sixth symphony is heard here in a 1952 recording. The 1955 recording of the third symphony reissued here helped consolidate the reputation of conductor John Frandsen. Like his Danish compatriots, Frandsen never achieved a significant reputation outside Scandinavia, though within Denmark he became a considerable force. The two purely orchestral excerpts from Nielsen's incidental music for Helge Rode's play Moderen feature Emil Reesen, one of the Danish State Radio Symphony Orchestra's founders.
