Classics Today



Carl Nielsen’s symphonies, concertos and other orchestral works are Scandinavia’s most powerful music. “Music is life, and like it inextinguishable,” said Nielsen – himself born and raised in the Danish countryside as the son of poor folk musician, but later recognized as one of the 20th century’s greatest symphonists. This unique collection consists of prizewinning recordings by the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, which has preserved the authentic playing style since Carl Nielsen’s time.

The box set contains: 3 CDs, 1 SACD and 2 DVDs
