Recent Reviews

Symphonies 5 and 6

5/5 Stars
Enjoy the Music

"Nielsen’s symphonies require a great orchestra, superb engineering, and a deeply sympathetic conductor who both understands and loves the music. Here we have all three. The New York Philharmonic is a virtuoso ensemble that can handle the composer’s sometime impossible demands with grace and power. Dacapo’s recording team has given us the most spacious, detailed, and transparent sound these works have ever received. [...] Those who know this music will be startled by how much expressive detail they hear, especially at the big climaxes, where even the best recordings often come up short."

Piano Quartets 1 & 2

MusicWeb International

"What we have here are two pieces of very high quality music with melody and energy. The recordings are spacious and detailed with the piano placed behind the strings and with the ambience of the acoustically excellent, and rather beautiful, DKDM Concert Hall subtly present."

"Es ist dem Dirigenten offenkundig daran gelegen, das überschäumende Temperament der Musik sowie deren harmonisch zukunftsweisende Qualitäten in den Vordergrund zu stellen."

String Quartets Vol. 3

MusicWeb International

"The Nightingale Quartet are in fine form once more, and bring all the freshness of new discovery – which many of these works must have been for them – to their splendid performances."

Symphonies 5 and 6

Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review

"Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic carry the day, with carefully impassioned readings of both symphonies that are surely to my mind definitive. It is a moving disk, something a Nielsenite will cherish and a newcomer will get the best possible way into the works. This is by all means a triumph!"

4/5 Stars
Audiophile Audition

"Intensely layered, the music achieves a weird density that dissolves into a waltz worthy of the Danse macabre."

Marimba Concertos

International Record Review

"A winner of a disc, then, especially recommended to those who are not immediately engaged by the idea of four marimba concertos nose to toe – give it a bash and I’m sure you’ll be won over."

Songs for choir

4/5 Stars
Sinfini Music

"Michael Bojesen’s sensitive harmonisations, based on Nielsen’s original piano parts, are matched by his fine feeling for nuance in performance and top quality singing from Ars Nova’s dozen choristers."

MusicWeb International

"Gilbert’s Fifth and Sixth are a clear Record of Month, a stunning artistic and administrative achievement fully realizing the high expectations at the outset of this Danish-American collaboration."
