R E V I E W S

"Excellent playing from the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic and exemplary recording from the Chandos team…" -- The Penguin Complete Guide

"The cornerstone of a Nielsen symphony cycle tend to be the accounts of the Fourth and Fifth, the latter perhaps the greatest symphony written in the 20th century. The accounts by the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic are beautifully played and recorded..." -- The Gramophone

"…what a marvellous orchestra this has become in recent years… the orchestral response is first-class in all departments." -- The Gramophone
