Notes and Editorial Reviews
"Too long neglected on disc, (his excellent Nielsen symphonies now also Regis) Ole Schmidt and Royal Philharmonic, with ideal couplings, offers an outstanding version of the Second Symphony…beautifully played and recorded in vivid, open sound, one of the very finest at any price." -- Penguin Guide, 3 stars
