Ludolf Nielsen

Symphony No. 1

Frank Cramer, conductor
South Jutland Symphony Orchestra

Ludolf Nielsen, composer

Ludolf Nielsen has a special talent for orchestral writing, and this record rediscovers two surprising works: the First Symphony, which was his first major work, and From the Mountains, a colourful and inventive symphonic suite. Ludolf Nielsen's works blended many ne ideoms of music from abroad with Nordic traditions. The rediscovery of his music sheds new light on the Danish music culture of the turn of the 19th Century.
