Even though the revival of Carl Nielsen's music in the late '60s proved to be nearly as revelatory as the slightly earlier promotion of Gustav Mahler's symphonies, the pace of recordings at the time was quite sluggish. Indeed, by the early '70s, the discography of Nielsen's symphonies included a smattering of releases by Leonard Bernstein and Eugene Ormandy for Columbia, Jascha Horenstein on Nonesuch, and Ole Schmidt on Unicorn, along with these utterly superior recordings by Herbert Blomstedt and the Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra for EMI. The six symphonies were recorded between 1973 and 1975, and for their time were the best available recordings of Nielsen's music. They constitute the bulk of this 2008 box set, and though two smaller sets of the symphonies and the concertos were issued by EMI in 2007, this seven-disc compendium provides much more music at a comparable cost. Blomstedt's lucid traversals of the symphonies, the three concertos, and a selection of overtures and tone poems are rounded out by performances of chamber works by the Melos Ensemble, and interpretations of Nielsen's piano music by Leif Ove Andsnes. Also appearing are Iona Brown and the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra with a rendition of the Little Suite, Op. 1; Andrew Davis with the BBC Symphony Orchestra playing the Overture from Maskarade; and various vocalists and choirs with the Danish Radio Symphony under Mogens Wöldike in performances of the Hymnus Amoris, Op. 12, and Søvnen (Sleep), Op. 18. Because the recording dates range from 1967 to 1995, listeners should expect considerable variance in the mix of analog and digital sources.
