Symphonies Nos. 2 & 3

Lucy Hall

Marcus Farnsworth

London Symphony Orchestra / Sir Colin Davis

With this eagerly awaited recording of Symphonies 2 & 3, Sir Colin Davis completes his enlightening Nielsen symphony cycle. The first title in the series, Symphonies Nos.4 & 5, was Editor's Choice in Gramophone and Orchestral Choice of the Month in BBC Music Magazine. The second, with Symphonies 1 & 6 was awarded CD of the Week in the Sunday Times.

Nielsen's second symphony was inspired by a naïve but vivid painting representing the four temperaments of the human personality. Adopting these defining characters for each of the symphony's movements Nielsen realised 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.

Concert Reviews:

"The LSO displayed a strong sense of movement throughout, coaxed along by Sir Colin with an even and steady hand. The Allegro collerico first movement was spirited, even violent at points … The final movement, Allegro sanguineo, was a tour de force of the brass section, blasting away in wild abandon, totally cowing the strings."

***** Bachtrack, Symphony No. 2

"Davis unleashed the opening allegro with an irresistible swing, fabulously played by the LSO, but he was sufficiently inside Nielsen’s symphonic imagination not to allow the more ruminative inner movements to be overwhelmed. It’s amazing to think that Davis has only recently come to the composer." The Guardian, Symphony No 3
