Nielsen: The Complete Symphonies 1-6

Classic FM
David Mellor

Nielsen’s 150th last year passed relatively unnoticed compared to Sibelius’s 150th, but Nielsen was a genuine symphonist of real stature, who, like Sibelius, met the symphonic challenge differently in each of his six symphonies. These recordings derive from Hess Radio recordings from 2009-2013, and are very sympathetically played and recorded under Paavo Jävi, one of today’s fastest rising conductors, despite being a dead ringer for Putin.
