Franz Berwald: Symphonies Nos. 1-4
Reviews

“Young Thomas Dausgaard captures, better than anyone I have heard since Markevitch, the visceral excitement of these symphonies, with their special blending of the orchestral panache of Berlioz and the formal elegance of Mendelssohn.” – McColley, Arkiv Music
