Booklet
This version of Danish composer Carl Nielsen’s Symphonies Nos. 3 & 4 were recorded live by the Seattle Symphony under the direction of its “first guest conductor” and also Danish, Thomas Dausgaard – who from the 2019-20 season will become its Music Director. Symphony No. 3 − “Sinfonia Espansiva” − written in 1910, is unique for having wordless vocal parts sung by a soprano and a bass in the second movement (who can be replaced by a clarinet and a trombone if necessary); interestingly this rather sinister Andante pastorale − already evocative of Shostakovich − was played at the composer’s funeral in 1931. The Symphony conveys a ferocious energy, expansive in the first movement that gave its name to the work, restrained in slower movements, and rather solemn and festive throughout the rest. Symphony No. 4, composed in 1915 and called “The Inextinguishable”, is also packed with energy, chaotic at times, and sometimes more channelled in the joy or magnitude of the gesture, with an orchestration of great originality. It’s a shame Nielsen isn’t featured more often on the programmes of French orchestras. © SM/Qobuz
