Notes and Editorial Reviews

Thomas Jensen once described himself as a handy man for a rough job. Indeed, he had to conduct a lot of Countess Maritzas and the like in the pit of a provincial theater. He was born into a working class family in Copenhagen in 1898. Though the youngest child he was soon entrusted to work the harmonium for the daily services in his home. The family belonged to a pious religious community which Thomas considered a terrible mistake. When he came of age, he made a radical break with his family. He began his musical education at the age of 14. He finished his training in the cello and began the study of the organ at 18. His teacher for music theory was Carl Nielsen. It is fair to describe this as a congenial relationship and is really the Read more reason why many people consider Jensen's interpretations of Nielsen's music some of the finest ever recorded to this day.
