 Across Scandinavia December 31, 2014 By bess holloway (Boulder, CO) See All My Reviews "This recording takes the listener from Norway to Sweden to Denmark--the ideal sampler. I bought it mostly for the Serenade by Dag Wiren. I have other versions of the Grieg and Nielsen Suites, and these match them well in quality of production. The short works by Svendsen are a nice added attraction, new to my ears. Very pleasing." Report Abuse
 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
