Carl Nielsen: The Masterworks, Vol. 1 - Orchestral Music based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
The Dacapo label is reissuing the works of Carl Nielsen in these terrific, inexpensive box sets titled “Carl Nielsen: The Masterworks”. This edition, volume 1, contains the six symphonies (on 3 CDs, and live performances on 2 DVDs), and a disc of orchestral works (including overtures and a suite, on SACD hybrid). The booklet is very informative, and each disc comes in a cardboard slipsleeve within the box. The Danish National Symphony Orchestra plays beautifully throughout. The DVDs were originally released in a 3 DVD set. The third disc contained a documentary on Nielsen’s life, called “The Light and the Darkness”. Unfortunately, that disc is not included in this set. I’m hoping Dacapo will make it available in a future set. The live performances on the DVDs are terrific, but they do not contain any subtitles to indicate the different movements. These small picky points aside, as a set this collection is essential.
