Notes & Reviews:

The composer C.F.E. Horneman (1840-1906) was acclaimed by his famous fellow-countryman Carl Nielsen as "the bright flame and lambent fire of Danish music". This new SACD recording featuring the Danish National Symphony Orchestra under Johannes Gustavsson presents a collection of Horneman's magnificent orchestral works, all of which have a background in mythological and historical Dramas.

ClassicsToday.com
Christian Horneman (1840 - 1906) wrote comparatively little music... the idiom is late romantic, the melodic invention consistently attractive, the scoring colorful and ear-catching. The music leaves you wanting more.

Fanfare
Sweeping orchestral scores superbly played and magnificently recorded.

MusicWeb International
A wealth of discovery, and with performances to match.

Fanfare Magazine, July / August 2012
Sch°nwandt adds the delightful Aladdin Overture, while Hughes supplies a monodrama from Esther, and the act III ballet music of Aladdin. This means there's some duplication among the three no matter what combination you try, but certainly Gustavsson is in no way inferior to the others. Recommended.
