Ludolf Nielsen

Symphony No. 2

Frank Cramer, conductor
Anton Kontra
South Jutland Symphony Orchestra

Ludolf Nielsen, composer

Ludolf Nielsen was one of the leading Danish composers in the first decades of the 20th Century. This recording includes his best-known symphony as well as first recordings of two "Nordic-coloured" works. As a Danish Late Romantic Ludolf Nielsen forms a link between National Romanticism and the many new impressions coming from abroad at the turn of the century.

Ludolf Nielsen’s Orchestration ist meisterhaft, sein Satz von konventioneller Eleganz, aber nicht ohne Tiefe … Die Aufnahmen bezeugen solides Engagement. (Fono Forum)
