This review is from: Hamerik: The Symphonies (Symphonies Nos.1-7; Requiem) (Audio CD)
The music of Asger Hamerik was an unknown quantity to me until I happened to come across this set on Amazon. The seven symphonies are (for the most part) what I would consider typical late-romantic era music, which is quite pleasant to listen to. The Requiem is a moving, powerful work that should be heard more widely.
The performances by both the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra and the Danish National Radio SO are first rate and well recorded. Conductor Thomas Dausgaard, the orchestras, choir and soloist are to be commended for bringing the music of what I would imagine to be a little-known composer to our attention.
