Considering the precarious financial profile of so many major US orchestras as well as the consequent paucity of orchestral recordings on this side of the Atlantic, it’s a treat to have this brand new disc with the Philharmonic and their music director, Alan Gilbert. It’s the initial entry in a projected cycle of all six of the Nielsen symphonies. The results are topnotch: keenly judged tempi, precise balances, supple phrasing and most importantly impassioned, committed playing. The sonics are just as good: big-boned, detailed and natural. The SA incarnation is particularly effective. While there is significant competition with what is now clearly regarded by many as standard repertoire, Gilbert and the players more than hold their own. If subsequent releases in this series are of a comparable caliber, this cycle may very well take its place among the best available versions.
