"If there is any composer that Alan Gilbert conducts to perfection, it is Carl Nielsen."
--The New Yorker
"A thrilling demonstration of a sensibility balanced between Romantic and Modernist...An occasion to celebrate for Nielsen lovers everywhere."
--New York Times
"The Nielsen sound brings out the best in the Philharmonic: muscular, warm, open-throated, even slightly rough playing that seems ideal."
--New York Classical Review
"The most thrilling of modern accounts"
"An immensely promising start to what could well prove a landmark cycle"
--BBC Music Magazine
"The New York Philharmonic is a powerhouse orchestra, Nielsen is a powerhouse symphonist, and Alan Gilbert revels in the music's energy and dynamism."
"The players clearly share Mr. Gilbert's enthusiasm for the composer, conveying the music with a commitment and attention to detail that rendered the Fifth an exciting traversal of contrasting moods." --New York Times

As a bonus to the symphony cycle, we get all three concertos. These are are tremendous performances and the soloists are Nikolaj Znaider (violin), Robert Langevin (flute), and Anthony McGill (clarinet).
A highly recommendable cycle that will bring the listener much enjoyment I imagine.
Where Gilbert really does shine is in his conducting of the concertos. Here, it seems that he really comes to life, and by and large he has soloists who are superior to those that Bostock used. Thus, if you want a complete set of all the symphonies and concertos by one conductor and don't really case if the symphony performances aren't the best, this is an OK set...certainly better as a whole than I would have expected.
