Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic perform Carl Nielsen’s Symphony No. 2 (The Four Temperaments) and Symphony No. 3 (Sinfonia Espansiva). After eight years as chief conductor of the Royal Swedish Philharmonic, Gilbert developed a special interest in Scandinavian music. He says of Nielsen's music: “Carl Nielsen's music comes out of a classic Germanic symphonic tradition, but it's so distinctly Danish… I'm sure that Nielsen's time has now come, and I am looking forward to sharing this wonderful music with audiences and CD listeners”'

“Give your Hi-Fi a blowout and your ears a treat. In these gloomy times, it's good to experience Nielsen's 'hymn to the joy of work' now available in its fullness. It's one of the finest CDs ever produced. . . period.” – MusicWeb-International.com, Jack Lawson
