Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Much more than just an entertaining offshoot of the same team’s deeply-felt Nielsen Symphonies cycle, this disc highlights Nielsen’s wide-ranging sense of curiosity. The natural mythologies that make up the central strand of the programme are always unpredictable, but there’s a special magic about Saga-Dream and Pan and Syrinx – the Gothenburg woodwind seem to have an effortless understanding of their elusive roles in both works. Järvi’s ineffable sense of atmosphere goes hand in glove with the Gothenburg Symphony Hall recording (outstanding as always) in dreamscapes and sea-pictures, while the extrovert, human worlds of Maskarade and Aladdin are deliciously pointed." - David Nice, BBC Music Magazine "Much more than just an entertaining offshoot of the same team’s deeply-felt Nielsen Symphonies cycle, this disc highlights Nielsen’s wide-ranging sense of curiosity.
