London Symphony Orchestra
Colin Davis, conductor

DSD recording, live at the Barbican October 2009 (Symphony No 5) and May 2009 (Symphony No 4).

Despite having been an admirer of the music of Danish composer Carl Nielsen for many years, Sir Colin Davis has rarely conducted any of his works. Now, at the age of 83, Sir Colin embarks on a complete cycle of the composer's symphonies.

Although Carl Nielsen is frequently compared to his near contemporary Jean Sibelius, each composer's music is equally individual. Both were celebrated symphonists but used the potential of an orchestra in different ways. Despite giving titles to the majority of his symphonies, Nielsen was often vague about the specific themes for each work. However his music is always direct, dynamic and lyrical.

Sir Colin's traversal of the symphonies began in concert in 2009. He will conduct the remaining symphonies in 2011 with two further LSO Live releases following in 2012.

Concert reviews:
"Nielsen's music could have been written for the LSO: the orchestra's robust sound and free-spirited temperament suit this symphony's virtuoso demands and visceral dynamism.

Davis, too, is attuned to Nielsen's brand of Beethovenian conflict. Davis conducted it with the vitality of someone worthy of the symphony's title, the 'Inextinguishable'" Financial Times

"this account of the "Inextinguishable" confirmed he and the LSO have something special to offer ... he produced an account of fabulous coherence" The Guardian

"Forget old dogs and new tricks, clearly it's never too late to embark upon a new repertoire strand ... this was an auspicious start. I reckon the maestro shed 40 years during this performance" The Independent
