 good versions August 8, 2014 By john clones (shrewsbury,Shrewbury, MO) See All My Reviews "Good versions of Nielsen's Little suite and Svendsen's music. I purchased I purchased it because of Svendsen of whom I am a big fan of. He wrote 2 symphonies and a romance for violin and orchestra which he is know for. He also wrote an excellent concerto for violin (opus 6) and an excellent concerto for cello (opus 7) which are not pouular. there are only one or two recordings of each work. I hope that Naxos or BIS will record these works. I also like the string serenade by Dag Wiren. Until now, I have not been as familiar with his music." Report Abuse
