Nielsen: Symphony #2, Op 16, The Four Temperaments (35:08)
New York Philharmonic / Alan Gilbert
“Music is life, and like life itself, music is inextinguishable,” said the Danish composer Carl Nielsen. His indomitable courage and infinite curiosity helped Nielsen develop into one of the greatest symphonists of the 20th century. With this new series of recordings, Nielsen crosses the Atlantic, as the New York Philharmonic and their music director Alan Gilbert shed new light on his unique symphonic sound.
