Notes and Editorial Reviews
“I think in terms of the instruments themselves – I sort of creep into their souls,” said Carl Nielsen (1865–1931). His three solo concertos for violin, flute, and clarinet are highly characteristic and expressive works that show how Nielsen developed as a composer, increasingly distancing himself from the classical conventions. This new recording by the New York Philharmonic and Alan Gilbert concludes the acclaimed Nielsen Project with Nikolaj Znaider, Robert Langevin, and Anthony McGill as soloists in vivid live performances from Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center.
