These recordings, made during Sir Colin Davis’ “Indian summer” with the orchestra, are acknowledged to be amongst the finest recordings ever made of this repertoire, receiving numerous awards. The symphonies were originally released between 2011 & 2013 & will now be made available together for the 1st time as a beautifully packaged box set, including 1 Pure Audio Blu-ray disc. Despite giving titles to the majority of his symphonies, Danish composer Carl Nielsen was often vague about what influenced each work. Nevertheless he was a master symphonist & his music is mesmerising, combining propulsive energy with lyrical invention.

Sir Colin Davis and the London Symphony Orchestra recorded Carl Nielsen’s six symphonies at London’s Barbican between 2009 and 2011, and released them in pairs on the orchestra’s audiophile label, LSO Live. This trimline box set presents those hybrid SACDs, along with a Blu-Ray audio disc of all six performances together, a true convenience for collectors who have the appropriate equipment. Yet however one hears these symphonies, the recordings offer exceptional clarity and depth, and all the details of these complicated works are perfectly audible. Nielsen’s music is noted for its powerful drive, dramatic conflicts, and idiosyncratic use of folk-inspired melodies, and more than any other genre he touched, the symphonies give a clear sense of his progress as a composer. Davis’ readings are coherent and reliable, striking a balance between Nielsen’s natural lyricism and his aggressive rhythms, and while these rigorous, unsentimental interpretations may strike some listeners as a bit cool, they are far from clinical. This is an important cycle that Davis’ many admirers will want to own.
