CARL NIELSEN: Symphony No. 3, “Sinfonia espansiva"
CARL NIELSEN: Symphony No. 4, “The Inextinguishable”
Following their recording of Mahler’s Symphony No. 10, which was shortlisted for the 2017 Gramophone Awards and described as “a game changer for all concerned,” Thomas Dausgaard and the Seattle Symphony return with electric and superbly played performances of Nielsen’s two most famous symphonies. Dausgaard has championed the music of his countryman throughout his career — and this album marks the beginning of his long-awaited cycle of the great Danish composer’s human and majestic symphonies.
