Conductor Fabio Luisi has led the Danish National Symphony Orchestra since 2017. It has been a good fit from the start, and as things really started to jell in the early 2020s, a Nielsen symphony cycle was a logical choice. This 2022 release is the second in the series, covering Nielsen's two most famous symphonies, the Symphony No. 4, Op. 29 ("inextinguishable"), and the Symphony No. 5, Op. 50. These two works are sometimes contrasted, with the Symphony No. 5 having a darker tonal palette and a grimmer feel in its great timpani duel, but they have a great deal in common, with long lines that must encompass deep contrasts. The Danish National Symphony percussionists add the requisite tension to the Symphony No. 5, but more important is Luisi's energetic sweep, his way of making even small details seem part of the overall narrative. The subtle thematic linkages in these works are clearly brought out without seeming clunky, and if there are more purely orchestrally virtuosic readings of these works, there are few that make as much musical sense. A good place to start when reacquainting oneself with Nielsen.

Glenn Gould, Extravaganza

How can I describe – let alone define – this truly one-of-a-kind pianist? As an alien, perhaps. An alien who whisks us away at supersonic speed before slowing down to land on an infinite world where there is time for everything. It is the acceptance and cultivation of his otherness (or his alienness?) that has made this unconventional pianist one of the greatest and most loved (and criticised) musicians ever.

Bernard Haitink, a Prophet in his Own Land

The great Dutch conductor who died recently at the venerable age of 92 proved the old adage wrong. Recognised by his peers throughout his own country from his youth, Bernard Haitink spent most of his vast career in the Netherlands, first conducting the Dutch Radio Orchestra and then the prestigious Concertgebouw in Amsterdam for 27 years, with whom he made many legendary recordings for PHILIPS, DECCA and EMI CLASSICS, including more than 450 recordings of a wide range of composers, among which Bruckner and Mahler enjoy pride of place.
