The Six Symphonies

Carl Nielsen was prolific in all genres; operas, concertos, chamber music etc., but the six symphonies are the high point of Nielsen’s production and clearly show his development from early youth to old age.

As one of the most important composers of the first part of the twentieth century, Carl Nielsen exerted a crucial influence on the composers of the next generation.

The symphonies are performed by the Danish National Symphony Orchestra and conducted by Michael Sch√łnwandt.
