About

The largest ever box set of Carl Nielsen recordings! All in new digital transfers done by Andrew Walter of Abbey Road Studios and Claus Byrith of Asinus Studios, with a large new booklet written by Lyndon Jenkins.

"The aim of this box set is intended to convey what it is: Vintage and Historic Carl Nielsen recordings. All the performances in this box set are musical documents of considerable historical importance. From the pioneering piano recordings of the 1930s through to the songs and early orchestral works and on to the benchmark recordings of the six symphonies with the Danish State Radio Symphony Orchestra, this collection is a unique treasure of Nielsen recordings of immense importance. My desire has been to give an account of these recordings – made between fifty and seventy years ago – before they are lost forever in the mist of time." - Lyndon Jenkins
