Nielsen symphonies conducted by Bernstein and Ormandy. From the Sony box set of the symphonies,and some other orchestral works. I actually hadn't heard the Flute and Clarinet Concertos,before!! I bought this set after reading a post,from Mirror Image,at the GMG Forum,extolling the qualities of Bernstein's recordings of Symphonies 3 & 4. I've never been that mad about Nielsen. Not that I didn't like his music! I just didn't return to him,that often! The exception was,the Fourth Symphony,which I got to know,as a youngster,via Alexander Gibson's recording,on an RCA Lp. A performance which is,apparently,still rated,very highly,by some. I had the Ole Schmidt cycle on Unicorn,for a long time. Some people like them;but they seem to have done little for me! After reading,MI's post,I looked for a copy of Bernstein's 3 & 5;but the prices sellers were asking,were too high for me. So,I bought this,4 cd set,instead! Needless,to say,I am now a complete convert to the Nielsen cause!! Grin Smiley
