Notes and Editorial Reviews
This release is the most comprehensive collection ever of historic Carl Nielsen recordings, features many of the musicians who knew Nielsen personally. All the performances in this box set are musical documents of considerable historical importance. From the pioneering piano recordings of the 1930s through to the songs and early orchestral works and on to the benchmark recordings of the six symphonies with the Danish State Radio Symphony Orchestra, this collection is a unique treasure of Nielsen recordings of immense importance. Not only are original phonogram recordings transferred, but also rare studio and live recordings stemming from the Danish Radio Archive are included. All the major works by Nielsen are here, some in various versions and all newly transferred at the Abbey Road Studios. A large comprehensive booklet Nielsen expert Lyndon Jenkins is also included and the 30 albums are sold at a very low price. A set not to be missed!
