Nielsen: The Symphonies & Concertos (Live)

26 November 2015  The New York Times
Anthony Tommasini

For the past few seasons at the New York Philharmonic, Alan Gilbert has emerged as an exceptional conductor of the visionary Danish composer Carl Nielsen, leading performances of his six symphonies and three concertos, all recorded live. In time for Nielsen’s 150th birthday this year, Dacapo has issued the individual installments as a four-CD boxed set. Mr. Gilbert balances the late-Romantic and searching contemporary elements of the symphonies in these spontaneous seeming yet organic performances. Three superb soloists join him for the concertos: the violinist Nikolaj Znaider, the flutist Robert Langevin and the clarinetist Anthony McGill.
