 A Wonderful Performance July 6, 2016 By Henry S. (Springfield, VA) See All My Reviews "The Odense Symphony Orchestra may be a regional Danish orchestra, but this recording demonstrates convincingly that it has the qualities which we attribute to the most famous of the European orchestras- precision, synchronization, attention to detail, and (obviously) luxurious sound. All of these features are on full display as this excellent Danish ensemble plays a program of lighter works by Carl Nielsen. Many of the individual selections come from Nielsen's operas or stage works, and squarely in the middle is the remarkable Little Suite for Strings (Op. 1), surely one of the more attractive first official works by anyone you are likely to find. Conductor Tamas' Veto keeps the program on track with a light, yet energetic touch, and the orchestra responds superbly. I would call this recording a great alternative look at Carl Nielsen's work, beyond his large scale symphonies and concertos. Recommended without any reservations." Report Abuse
