About

The fifth volume of the Legendary Danish Recordings. This final volume of Scandinavian Classics is released in the memory of Lyndon Jenkins who produced all the previous volumes and wrote the extensive booklet notes. With music on CD in new digital transfers, this 2 CD set is not to be missed.

Orchestras involved – Boyd Neel String Orchestra conductor Boyd Neel, The Danish State Broadcasting Orchestra conductor Erik Tuxen, The Royal Orchestra conductor George Høeberg, The Tivoli Symphony Orchestra conductor Thomas Jensen

“Danacord have presented a packed programme which is exceptionally varied in its musical explorations. The liner notes by Claus Byrith are excellent and informative. I guess that the highlight for me is the above noted rediscovery of an old favourite recording of Sibelius 5. However, there is plenty to enjoy, in the ‘lollipops’ in the second CD – especially the Tango Jalousie and Lumbye’s train music A great collection of interesting music that deserves our attention” – MusicWeb International

Recorded 1933-55.
