Notes and Editorial Reviews

For me this set was brilliantly played, expertly shaped and recorded in exhilarating sound: in short, a revelation. Previously, my touchstone for these works had been Blomstedt’s Danish RSO version, but now Storgårds has more than surpassed these for me, the excitement of his readings making me hear these works in a new way. This isn’t just an anniversary plod through Nielsen: it’s a proper exploration, so join the explorers and prepare to be challenged.
