New York Philharmonic: Gilbert Conducts Nielsen
COMP - $17.50*
The New York Times proclaimed the New York Philharmonic's recording of Carl Nielsen's Symphonies Nos. 2 and 3 as one of the Best Classical releases of 2012. Now music director and maestro Alan Gilbert are back to wow audiences with another set of performances devoted to the Danish composer as part of their multi-season survey of his works. They'll tackle his First and Fourth Symphonies as well as his famed Helios overture, which tracks the passage of the sun from dawn to nightfall. Described as traditional, yet quirky, with an "odd Nordic sensibility," Nielsen's music has long been championed by the New York Phil, since Leonard Bernstein's landmark recording of his Fifth Symphony in 1962 introduced him to an international audience and since Gilbert himself was "totally grabbed" by a performance of Nielsen's Symphony No. 4 as a young music lover.
