Herbert Blomstedt's Nielsen symphony cycle is widely acclaimed as among his best. The second set of three continues Blomstedt's fine interpretations of these powerful symphonies. Nielsen's Fifth is a stunning, miraculous, amazing, tragic, and ultimately life-affirming masterpiece. Written in the wake of the Great War when the scope of its horror had become fully apparent to the composer, it speaks profoundly and prophetically of the rise of nationalism, fascism, and the eternal conflict between a peaceful social discourse and the war-machine of the state.

Two-disc set recorded in standard CD format (DDD).
