Despite giving titles to the majority of his symphonies, Danish composer Carl Nielsen was often vague about what influenced each work. Nevertheless he was a master symphonist and his music is mesmerising, combining propulsive energy with lyrical invention.

Top Classical Albums of 2011

"...the great British maestro brings the expnasiveness and rgour of his celebrated Sibelius to two of the Danish composer’s most frequently heard symphonies."

The Sunday Times - 11 December 2011


                     Editor’s Choice

   "At last! Nielsen’s two best-known symphonies in modern performances with real fire in their belly ... he [Davis] brings animal excitement to the task, such asthrilling sense of discovery and existential danger"
