Thomas Dausgaard’s recording of Mendelssohn’s Symphonies Nos. 1 and 3 with the Swedish Chamber Orchestra (BIS) is named Le chocs du mois Album of the Month” in Classica magazine (March 2022).
Jérémie Bigorie writes:
“Felix Mendelssohn was 15 when he composed this symphony, and Thomas Dausgaard embraces the impetuous tonality. Dausgaard’s interpretation is a magnificent dream. …The transparency of the textures achieves a rare aesthetic. The non troppo is characterised by its mischievously smooth phrases. …All credit to the conducting, which reconciles reflection and spontaneity. …Thomas Dausgaard magnifies these gems of German romanticism.
