 Astonishing Sonics, A Spirited Reading, A Precise August 22, 2013 By James Martin (Corpus Christi, TX) See All My Reviews "I will admit to being ignorant of Berwald prior to hearing this recording. (For that matter, I was ignorant of Dausgaard as well.) The Third Symphony has amazing sonics; the reading is energized and the playing uniformly excellent. Thomas Dausgaard gets as much out of the Danish National Radio Orchestra as anyone might. This is a dazzling, lovely, exciting recording well worth owning. I can't wait to hear Vol. 2." Report Abuse
