Fabio Luisi, Danish National Symphony Orchestra
Carl Nielsen: The Symphonies (3CD)
After six years of acclaimed live performances in Europe, USA and Asia, The Danish National Symphony Orchestra and Fabio Luisi present their special take in Carl Nielsen’s symphonies on record for the first time.
Following the release of all six symphonies on three individual digital albums, this special digipack set edition of the complete symphonies is released in conjunction with a two-week Carl Nielsen concert series in DR Koncerthuset, Copenhagen, in April 2023.
“The Danish National Symphony Orchestra play with marvelous commitment and finesse.” Gramophone Critics’ Choice 2020 “The performances make a powerful case for both the orchestra itself — a nimble, resourceful ensemble distinguished by sinewy string sections and warm brass playing — and for Nielsen’s music. The orchestra members seemed to have Nielsen’s distinctively pointed language in their veins, and Fabio Luisi spurred the ensemble to extravagant shows of passion” San Francisco Chronicle 2017
