Format: Audio CD
This is a super-bargain reissue of Blomstedt's 1975 Nielsen cycle, which was superseded by a much better played and recorded cycle from San Francisco (on Decca). Yet there are gains as well as losses in these Danish Radio performanes, where the rough playing gives a gritty edge to Nielsen's idiom. At times there's a haunted quality as well, and one never doubts the players' enthusiasm for their national composer. If only Blomstedt weren't so neutral -- where's the joy in the opening of the Sym. #3 "Espansiva," or the searing brutality in the battle sequences at the end of the first movement of the Sym. #5? If anything, Blomstedt became more cautious and smoother in San Francisco, so I can't recommend him over Bernstein, Salonen, and other notable Nielsen conductors in eihter set. For bargain hunters only, I'm afraid.

9 of 11 people found the following review helpful By DAVID BRYSON VINE VOICE on January 21, 2011
Format: Audio CD
When choosing recordings of Nielsen for my own collection I tend to home in on Danish offerings, and if I do that on my own account I suppose I should give similar advice to other potential purchasers. For some reason Nielsen has never established himself internationally in the way Sibelius has. I don't detect much consensus among musicians about how his symphonies should and should not be played, largely no doubt because I don't hear them much discussed in the first place.

Such divergence of opinion as I do find tends to be around the issue of how vividly the music should be characterised. Playing safe would be unfair to strong and often experimental music like this, but over-dramatisation risks being, if not slightly ridiculous, then at least a bit un-Danish. In my own opinion the symphonies present us with a paradox that interpreters have to do their best with. On the one hand they introduce a miscellaneous assortment of novelties - wordless voices in the slow movement of #3, the famous racket kicked up by the drums in the first movement of #5, ending in keys they did not start in (like Mahler's fourth) - without really seeming to get away from their Brahmsian roots that are so obvious in the first symphony, repeated first movement exposition included. All very interesting of course, but not really amounting to a coherent new symphonic idiom such as Mahler established. Nearer home Sibelius was no revolutionary in his music any more than in his politics, but his symphonic style is a new thing on the earth for all that, as individual and unmistakable as there has ever been.

So - what do you want in a complete set of the six Nielsen symphonies? It's perfectly fair for us to demand that each individually should be to our liking, whatever that may be in practice.

I'm not a professional musician or a critic, just someone who has always loved Nielson's work. This set of the symphonies, with a few short works added in, is a delight to me and the kind of bargain I needed to add this to my collection.
