After six years of acclaimed live performances in Europe, the United States, and Asia, the Danish National Symphony Orchestra and Fabio Luisi are now presenting their special take on Carl Nielsen’s symphonies on record for the first time. The orchestra is internationally acclaimed for its interpretations of Nielsen’s music, cultivated through generations of musicians ever since the composer himself conducted the orchestra in the 1920s and 1930s. For Fabio Luisi, however, the symphonies were a relatively new acquaintance when he took over the position as the orchestra’s Chief Conductor in 2016. Luisi says, “Nielsen’s music really belongs to the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, and it has been a beautiful experience for me as a conductor to get to know this highly interesting, complex, and deeply original composer.”
