The symphonies of Danish composer Carl Nielsen, deeply rooted in the Danish landscape and culture yet with universal appeal, are among the great works of the symphonic repertoire. Deutsche Grammophon is pleased to include Nielsen's complete symphonies in its catalog - and to do so with an orchestra closely associated with the composer, and a conductor open to new ideas and inspiration. The Danish National Symphony Orchestra has been internationally renowned for its interpretations of Carl Nielsen's music since the composer himself conducted the orchestra in the 1920s and 1930s. Now, under its principal conductor Fabio Luisi, the orchestra has recorded its special interpretation of Nielsen's symphonies for the first time after many years of acclaimed live performances. "The DNSO plays with wonderful commitment and finesse." (Gramophone Critics Choice), "The orchestra members seemed to have Nielsen's distinctively pointed language in their veins, and Luisi spurred the ensemble on to extravagant shows of passion." (San Francisco Chronicle) are just a few of the fantastic reviews the orchestra received for its performances. This 3-CD digipack edition of the six symphonies offers a true listening experience, bringing listeners Nielsen's very own direct, vivid, and heartfelt musical language. And unquestionably, the DNSO is well acquainted with their special characteristics.
