Carl August Nielsen (1865-1931), Danish composer. Prolific in almost all genres: two operas, six symphonies, three solo concertos, chamber music, piano and organ music, a 

large number of songs as well as occasional music. In his very personal musical idiom he dissociated himself strongly from Late Romanticm, and his early works were inspired by 
Brahms’ classicism, while later adopted features from European modernism. As the most important Danish composer of the first third of the twentieth century, Nielsen exerted a 
crucial influence on the Danish composers of the next generation.
"This all-Danish disc is a first class release which any Nielsen fan should not be without. Both the playing and the recording are of high standard and to cap the package off there are excellent booklet notes with useful essays on both works. Well done to all concerned!"     ***** 
Classical Music on the Web

"These days, when orchestral standards throughout Scandinavia are so high, the prospect of listening to a Danish orchestra playing music by the pre-eminent Danish composer of the 20th century is an enticing one, and this disc lives up to its promise" 

The Sunday Times

 "...This is the most powerful and convincing account of the Sixth to have appeared in recent years, and it benefits from wide-ranging and vividly defined recording..."    *****

"...It’s all captured in excellent, atmospheric sound that provides clarity, a warm sense of space, and a richly upholstered bottom. Marvelous"
