Nielsen for the modern age
"Micheal Schønwandt conducts with great detail and sweep"

5/5 Stars

"Die Sänger, die für diese Produktion engagiert wurden, bringen die Komödie auf hohem Niveau zu Leben und da auch Schoenwandt die leichte und spritzige Musik des Komponisten mit viel Sinn für den klugem Witz auf die höhere Qualitätsschiene hebt, ist alles vereint, um dem Hörer zwei vergängliche Stunden mit geistreicher, sprühender Musik zu garantieren."

This is a wonderful set, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Offhand it’s hard to imagine a happier celebration of Nielsen’s 150th anniversary.

"Balanceret nydelse"

MusicWeb International

"...Znaider takes command and doesn’t let go. He varies his tone, as the music requires, from big and fruity to soft and silvery (...) The sound is terrific and one can hear all kinds of details in the orchestra that would otherwise go unnoticed. Dacapo’s production is fully in the luxury class. In every way this SACD is a winner and a fine conclusion to Alan Gilbert’s Nielsen cycle."

BBC Music Magazine

"This latest CD boasts probably the strongest cast on record so far. The mighty bass Stephen Milling catches the ageing paterfamilias Jeronimus’s comically fallible humanity likeably."

"Whether Nielsen is taking a retrospective or a prospective stance, Gilbert always seems to find the right approach to phrasing his thematic content, coloring it with just the right balance of instrumental resources, and managing the give-and-take between soloist and ensemble …this recent release is definitely an excellent way for the attentive listener to get to know the concertos."

"...pladen er en ægte perle: "Man kan sige, at vi har befriet Kingo fra flere århundreders lag puds, som fællessangtraditionen i folkekirken har tilført hans salmer""

Gramophone EDITOR's CHOICE

"As with Scriabin, Nielsen’s anniversary invites us to reassess the composer with new recordings, in this case a fourth—and successful—outing on disc for Maskarade."

Read more



"Throughout this disc Alan Gilbert and the NYPO play on the kinship that exists between the symphonies that effectively gave the Flute and Clarinet Concertos breath. The latter is a substantial chip off the block that is the Fifth Symphony—and even has the clarinettist bring his old sparring partner, the side drum, with him. NYPO principal Anthony McGill revels effortlessly in its wild improvisatory nature and those elemental pyrotechnics."
