Notes and Editorial Reviews

From the GRAMOPHONE review of the original release:
"It is good to see these inspired symphonies coming back into their own: they are a further corrective to the popular view that Norwegian music begins and ends with Grieg...Every time I hear the D major Symphony, it is with amazement at its freshness, polish and inventive resource...the Oslo orchestral playing is superior and distinguished by first-rate ensemble alert rhythms and keenly articulated phrasing".
