      Nielsen: Symphony #3, Op 27, Sinfonia espansiva (34:41)

      London Symphony Orchestra / Sir Colin Davis

      Nielsen’s Second Symphony was inspired by a vivid painting representing the Four Temperaments of the human personality. Adopting these defining characters for each of the symphony’s movements, Nielsen realized a sonic depiction of emotion. His Third Symphony, the most openly Danish of his symphonies, portrays spaciousness, power and vitality and is considered his greatest international achievement.
