The Unknown Carl Nielsen [Digital Only]

3/6 Stars
Fyens Amts Avis

"Sangene, fortolket af Dénise Beck, Johan Reuter og Ars Nova Copenhagen med Michael Bojesen, er her blevet oversat bemærkelsesværdigt ordret til et smukt og poetisk engelsk."

The Symphonies & Concertos

Kristeligt Dagblad

"Har man ikke Carl Nielsens symfonier i sin samling, er der god økonomi - og betydeligt kunstnerisk udbytte - i at anskaffe sig den komplette boks med i alt fire cd'er."

5/6 Stars
Jyllands-Posten

The Unknown Carl Nielsen [Digital Only]

5/6 Stars
Kristeligt Dagblad

"Den ene perle afløser den anden, og Becks fine kvindestemme og Reuters mandige røst glæder i lige høj grad lytteren, ligesom Ars Nova også fryder med deres lette Nielsen-stil."

Alliages

Gramophone

"Committed performances, as one might expect from this crop of the leading Danish musicians, and unexceptionally fine sound enhance the attractions of a release that certainly makes a representative introduction to another composer of note within the Danish (as indeed Scandinavian) musical firmament."

Songs for choir

Gramophone
