Music of Nordic grandeur, played with spirit, vigour and commitment,
This review is from: Svendsen - Symphonies 1 & 2 (Audio CD)
Thoroughly enjoyable performances by the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra's players who seem to find this composer's music as attractive as may many listeners. A bonus of reasonably generous playing time of the CD - over 70 minutes - and typically good
quality in recording - this is another fine bargain from Naxos, as the previous reviewer rightly noted - in fact, reading his enthusiastic, detailed, positive review encouraged me to buy the CD (thank you Mr Bryson).
For those who might wish to hear more of Svendsen's music, several folk song arrangements by him appear on the Naxos CD entitled "Scandanavian String Music". That disk includes also some very pleasant works by other composers, notably the Serenade of Dag Wiren.
