This recording concludes the acclaimed cycle of Carl Nielsen symphonies by the New York Philharmonic and Alan Gilbert, known as The Nielsen Project.
Recorded live in Avery Fisher Hall in October 2014, this CD presents the Danish national composer’s last two symphonies - nos 5 and 6, the latter of which has never previously been performed by the Philharmonic.
According to Alan Gilbert, both works represent the “battle between good and evil” and are profound, dramatic works by a mature composer who knew that his days were numbered.
Press Quotes about The Nielsen Project:
“The players clearly share Mr Gilbert’s enthusiasm for the composer, conveying the music with a commitment and attention to detail that rendered the Fifth an exciting traversal of contrasting moods.” - New York Times
“If there is any composer that Alan Gilbert conducts to perfection, it is Carl Nielsen.” - The New Yorker
“The Nielsen sound brings out the best in the Philharmonic: muscular, warm, open-throated, even slightly rough playing that seems ideal.” - New York Classical Review
