Review By Limelight,Limelight Magazine,May 2007

Limelight Award Nominee 2007

Thomas Dausgaard conducts with style and spirit and the orchestra is first class. For lovers of finely written orchestral music, this disc is a must.

Review By David Fanning,Gramophone,April 2007

This is outstanding, and unmissable for Nielsen collectors—and not only for the less familiar items, all of which have been recorded before (not badly, either). The Danish Radio Symphony must have played the Saul and David and Maskarade excerpts and the Helios Overture more times than they can count. But for Dausgaard they relish every detail, without ever sounding self-conscious. To call the balance in the “Cockerels’ Dance” felicitous would be an understatement; it is revelatory. Nor is affectionate an adequate word for Dausgaard’s interpretations of all the music on this disc; there is love here, and a sense of crusading mission.
